About the Speakers
Rob Scott is a user experience architect at the BBC, currently working within BBC Education. Recently he has been leading the design of immersive education prototypes for BBC Bitesize and championing VR as a medium amongst his UX design colleagues.
Prior to the BBC, he spent 7 years with a niche provider of meaningful travel experiences, constructing the IA for CRMs, flight booking and event management systems. He organises the VR Manchester meetup to promote and celebrate the VR community in North West England, and will happily talk about ‘presence’ for hours if you let him.
Emily has been a UX architect at the BBC since 2014. She is currently working on joining up the BBC Children’s ecosystem, helping kids discover more content they’ll love: from games, learning apps and quizzes, to TV shows and fan website content.
Prior to this role, Emily ran a small digital agency where she designed and built information-rich websites for a wide range of arts organisations and small/medium-sized businesses. Emily occasionally speaks at UX and IA conferences when she feels like she has something important to say. She has a daily yoga practice to keep her grounded and does acroyoga whenever she feels like taking off.
As Creative Director for UX architecture (UXA) and UX Writing at the BBC, Dan Ramsden leads a team of information architects who are committed to making the BBC’s tools, content and experiences more meaningful and connected.
He’s responsible for defining the professional practice of UXA at the BBC and ensuring that the organisation is creating information architecture that delivers the best possible experiences to its editors and audiences.
Dan has previously worked for agencies and ran a theatre company. He now designs labels, vocabularies, URLs, navigation, strategies and processes. He likes jokes, magic and making the most of moments. He also likes alliterations. He lives just outside Sheffield (UK) with a wife, a child and a cat called Rosa.
