With her Business Analysis experience, UX design background and customer-centred approach, she helps companies define clear software requirements, improve customer experience and create better digital products.
She is also a Certified Scrum Product Owner and Google Design Sprints Facilitator.
Joanna is a little bit of a globetrotter. She has worked on projects in Austria, Poland, South Africa, Canada, the UK and Ireland. Her experience stretches across many different sectors e.g. IT (Software development), Financial Services (Banking, General Insurance, Life & Pensions, Investments), Utilities (Electricity & Gas), Telecommunications (Mobile Services), Construction, Real Estate, Hospitality, Public Sector and many more.
Joanna describes herself as mostly soft and cuddly type, but who nevertheless gets things done. She insists on finishing whatever she has started and on cleaning up afterwards.
In her spare time, Joanna likes to travel to exotic destinations, she reads voraciously (even the back of milk cartons) and stares at sunsets at her local beach. She loves wildlife and the unpredictability of the African bush. She has a pet bearded dragon called “Freddy” who has amassed more than 1800 Facebook fans (see “Bearded Dragons Den” FB page) and a stray cat called Gearbox (don’t ask, it is a long story).
Her favourite saying is:
“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”
