About this talk

Design Thinking is a powerful set of creative tools to learn more about your customers and design solutions to real problems. However, if your leadership team isn't bought in on the power and purpose of these exercises, it can be deflating and demoralizing. In this session, Robin Reynolds, Head of Product at uShip, discusses a time when design thinking worked well and when it didn't, making the case that product leadership plays an important role in its succes. Robin Reynolds is the Head of Product at uShip, researching and planning their pivot into the e-commerce furniture space, while building up and mentoring our product and design group. She’s worked in product across several different industries from advertising, to internet of things, to logistics and has worked in four person startups to 11,000+ personal corporations. Robin is a two time University of Texas at Austin graduate with a Masters in Technology Commercialization. Outside of work she loves to dance and work with her co-founders on their education tech startup!
