About The Speaker

Elizabeth has been working in UX and content strategy in Dublin, London, and Toronto since 2007. In 2015, she set up the content design practice at Intercom in Dublin, and last year moved back to Canada to join Shopify’s platform team as a UX Lead, focusing on trust.

About The Talk 

There’s a disconnect between how some platforms view themselves, and how the world sees them. Elisabeth will talk about the design challenges and responsibilities of platform design by asking: How do platforms and third parties share responsibility for user data? How can a platform designer build and safeguard user trust? And what, ultimately, does a healthy platform look like?
