Sofia Khan
Sofia conducted her first user interview on her sisters at 9 years old when her parents gave her first dual deck recorder with a microphone. She has since fell in love with researching and interviewing people to discover their core needs and beliefs across various careers such as Counseling, Sales, Marketing and ultimately User Experience (UX) Research and Design Strategy. Sofia has worked with as well as managed teams to provide service to over 100+ national and international clients across the Entertainment, Financial, Government, Marketing, Non-Profit, Retail and Tech industries. Some of her previous clients have included BP/Arco, Cisco, HP, Heineken USA, National Restaurant Association, Wellington Management, One97 (India), Cisneros Media (Venezuela) and lifetime clients: her own mom and dad. Her leadership/training philosophy, "guide the heart vs. manage the mind," has helped her gain repeat business from her clients as well as earn the respect of her peers. When Sofia's not working, she's out dancing, hiking in the woods, enjoying improv comedy, trekking back to her Chicago hometown or concocting wireframes at a local hackathon.

Ulrich Boulon
Ulrich grew up on a sunny island called Guadeloupe, ultimately graduating with a MA in sociology & web culture and a MSc in innovation, strategy & entrepreneurship.

He has spent the last 5 years of his career developing the user experience and product design from the brief, and envisions spending the next 5 years leading it. From design-thinking to first-in-class seamless user experiences, to lean or Agile implementation with an extreme passion to communicate, apply user experience methodologies, as well as pioneering innovations across a customer centric storytelling.

Ulrich has been honoured to work with prestigious companies including Google, UBS, Viacom, Virgin, Sainsbury’s, Youtube, BBC, Burberry. Moreover, he's a startup co-founder and part-time UX design instructor at General Assembly, aimed at building a better present through knowledge-sharing and coaching.

Finally, he doesn’t claim to have authored the description, but managing the intersection of strategy and design is how he aligns all his creative work in products, experiences, and communications.

His favourite quote: The “future is now”! Simply because it belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
