Louisa is a design, strategy and innovation leader. Over the past 20 years, she has been part of the development of many technologies that are now considered commonplace. As design director during the first dotcom boom, Louisa led the design of some of the first digital consumer projects for banks, healthcare companies and government services. She was executive director for BBC future platforms when iPlayer was released. As global head of strategy for international design agency Fjord (now part of Accenture), she was responsible for trends and thought leadership, as well as working on award-winning projects such as Bonnier Media’s News Plus, which reinvented the newspaper for the touch-screen era. She founded Superhuman in 2013 to focus on the human aspects of the digital future, and works with clients large and small to align product design, business and technology with the needs of real people.

Louisa is also a highly regarded speaker on topics such as the future of technology, technology and society, strategic and product development and planning, personal identity in the digital age, big data, screen-less interfaces (the IoT), AI and design education.

Louisa’s talks are all focused on the human aspects of technology – where technology is taking us in business, society and individually – identifying threats and opportunities, and applying human-centered thinking to find a sustainable way forward. The key theme is putting technology in the service of people and not the other way around.

  • Louisa gave an excellent talk on our event Yle prophesy in Finland. Attendees as well as other speakers mentioned her talk as one of the best talks of the whole event!

    Atte Hujanen, Yle Prophesy

  • Louisa’s talent is rare. Her ideas are original and she sees the future potential of digital experiences before the majority. As a speaker, she’s unusual in also being able to communicate these ideas in a free flowing presentation style which engages her listeners and creates a conversation. As a workshop facilitator, she achieves outstanding results by setting challenging exercises, involving all participants and ensuring her team’s outputs are clear and memorable. As a result, I’ve invited her as a speaker and facilitator on several occasions and have been impressed every time.
