Don’t Do Things Better, Do Better Things – Pete Trainor (Director of Human Focused Digital – ?Nexus CX LTD)

Due to the way civilisations progress, we are about to observe more change in the next ten years, than of the last hundred. But how do we prevent this acceleration from eroding away our humanity? As Transhumanism becomes increasingly an every day thing, ask this: do the interfaces we’ve designed add more layers of confusion? When we strip away all those screens, what are we left with? The same thing we started with — people.

Incorporating data collected from one of Nexus’ Technoself Studies, Pete Trainor takes us back to the fundamental questions that drive us all, and through a journey of design philosophy he asks one simple question, the one we have asked through all times… why?

About the Speaker

Pete Trainor is a digital designer, bestselling author, accidental polymath, mental health campaigner and founder of Nexus in London. He talks all over the world on data driven technologies and the effects on their audiences. His recently published book “Hippo – Human Focused Digital” takes a philosophical look at technology and design, challenging us all to look inwardly at the self when designing experiences for other people.

Pete also sits on the executive board of the British Interactive Media Association.

He has a very simple mantra: Don’t do things better, do better things.

Radical Trust – How to Grow as a Leader by Jane Austin

How do you scale your effectiveness as a leader? I’ll take you on my journey in answering this question. Moving from a culture of top-down management to one of radically devolved teams. Learning new ways to help build autonomous, inclusive teams that are empowered to find their own direction. Allowing you to let go as a leader and be confident that your teams will all go in the right direction.

Closure Experiences by Joe Macleod

How many products have you started, lunched, built the customer base for? Do you have the same passion about ending them appropriately? Does it matter?


Most experiences in life are punctuated by a closure experience. In the past these were profound; however, over generations we have distanced ourselves from meaningful closure experiences thanks to our lifestyles increasing in comfort, the church weakening and medicine advancing. 
Long term side effects of this are exampled in the Product, Service and Digital landscapes that we frequent. The consequences of our behaviour results in a changing climate, industries fined billions for mis-selling and individuals casually eroding their personal online reputations.


Many of us are active in the creation of services, products or digital products; making them attractive, engaging and usable for consumers, but we often overlook concluding these experiences for the user in a responsible way. Closure Experiences offers a model to frame this change.

Most importantly, you’ll learn how to learn, so you can develop your own style as you grow.

In the 2-hour session, we’ll get into:

• What’s a workshop anyway?
• Laying the right foundations
• Planning your workshop effectively
• Resources and tools
• Running it well
• Success after the workshop
