Adrian Howard is passionate about building effective teams and great products. He co-founded Quietstars to help organisations do that using Lean, Agile and User Experience practices.
You'll find Adrian working with startup and product development teams — doing everything from coaching & teaching to hands on user experience & development work
With more than fifteen years experience working with startups, established businesses and agencies Adrian is an active member of the Agile and Lean UX communities. He organised the UX Stage at the Agile 2010 and Agile 2012 conferences, and regularly teaches and speaks on integrating Lean, UX and Agile methods. He's also a mentor for Lean Startup Machine and speakup.io.
You'll often find him ranting in a corner of the bar about how agile, business and user experience folk need to play nice together. Be kind and buy him whisky.
Before he fell into industry Adrian was a member of the Socio-Cognitive Technology Research Group at Sussex University, taught on the Human Centred Computing Systems MSc, and picked up a degree in Computing and Artificial Intelligence with a side order of Cognitive Philosophy & Linguistics.
