Cory started working with the internet way back in 2001 when she chanced her way into a position as web content editor for the Aussie version of the X-Games.
Since then she's dabbled in PR, marketing, events, a skateboard shop, worked as a barista, accrued a blank IMDB profile, run pub poker tournaments in rural Australia and dropped out of Bible college - amongst other things.
She's currently based in Dublin, Ireland, where she's a product design manager for PaddyPower.
Need help planning which sessions to attend? We've provided a breakdown of our various session types below.
A presentation and discussion of real-life (not theoretical) experiences of the application (or mis-application) of service design techniques. Case studies and experience reports include some discussion of lessons learned and an indication of how novel the work is.
Participants learn a new approach, tool or technology through using it to solve one or more practical exercises. Any software/hardware requirements are disclosed in the session description.
A session focused around some specific tool, technique or issue. Primarily led by the speaker, tutorials usually include some elements of interactivity or individual / group exercise.
An in-depth working session on a specific topic. May include paper presentations.
