There's a transformation going on in British government. Inspired by agile web development and human centred design methods, policy makers are taking radically new approaches to how they tackle some of society's biggest problems. Shim will share the story of how this change came about and discuss some examples of how policymakers are enabling citizens to impact their society.
Shim is a product designer and had the opportunity to work with the cabinet office while leading the strategy team at Mint Digital, a product development studio based in London and New York. Shim is now co-founder of Mayku, a london based startup on a mission to make manufacturing local, simple and accessible to all.
