I have worked in digital product development for 15+ years. During this time I have gained valuable experience in the fields of accessibility, social enterprises, e-commerce, Media and Fintech.
My roles required doing user research, building research practices from scratch, as well as growing research teams. As a former Head of Research and Chief Product Officer I have led not only user researchers, but also developers, designers and product managers.
The early start of my career evolved around academic research at the University of Melbourne. It did not take me long to realize that my passion lies in technology and the positive impact it can have on people’s lives. This is why I moved back to Europe and dedicated myself to leading with research and insights in digital product development.
A sample of the places and industries I worked in:
- Head of Research & Development at Dedicon, the largest publisher of audiobooks and alternative reading formats in the Netherlands.
- Co-founder of a social innovation network to enable young entrepreneurship in the suburbs of Stockholm.
- Head of User Research at Schibsted Media, the largest Media Group in Scandinavia. Empowering millions of people in Sweden and Norway with access to independent journalism.
- Chief Product Officer at Dreams Technology, a global B2B platform for financially sustainable living.
Curious by nature, I have not shied away from stepping into new roles or taking on more responsibility. In the true spirit of Stippen Consulting – connecting the dots wherever I go!
