Steve (or Buzz as many know him) is a design leader and collaborator with over
20 years of experience being the mentor, coach and teacher. He strives to be
radically transparent about failures and what he’s learned along the way in
creating some of the most loved products and brands in the world, including
Skype, Microsoft Xbox One, Skyscanner, Lego and BBC.
Buzz recently established and led the Skyscanner Design team of 70 people across 9 offices around the world. Under his leadership, the company repositioned and rebranded, and the team embedded customer centric research and design practices, generating new products and features where growth doubled to over 100 million customers in just 4 years.
Buzz also serves on the board of the Design Council, working with government and policy makers on design’s contribution to national GDP and all round improvements on emerging societal issues.
He’s now taking a break, sharing what he’s learned at various conferences around Europe, as he looks for his next adventure.
