We are honored to announce that Peter Greenaway, Daniel Rosenberg and Irene Au will be keynote speakers at Interaction14. Their insights, stories and experiences will entertain and inspire you.
Three more inspiring keynotes
Peter Greenaway - Peter has made 12 feature films and 50 short-films and documentaries, published books, written opera librettos and made exhibitions for several renowned art museums in Europe. His storytelling experience will highlight issues similar to those that keep interaction designers busy.
Daniel Rosenberg - Daniel helps CEO and UX leaders create competitive user experience strategies. He is also an Adjunct Professor at San Jose State University in the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department. Having led SAP’s UX team (180 people in eight countries), Dan knows how to apply UX on a global scale. You will benefit from his insights.
Irene Au - Irene has designed online experiences for three influential start-ups: Netscape, Yahoo and Google. As Head of User Experience and Design at Google, she was responsible for the user interface design of all Google-branded products. Now as VP of Product and Design at Udacity, she is helping another start-up realize their dream: bringing higher education online. We all can learn from her start-up expertise.
