    Conference Designer

    UX Copenhagen

    2014 -


    I came up with the idea of creating conferences about User Experience and Design in Copenhagen in 2014, and launched the first one in March 2015. UX Copenhagen® has become an event that excels in bringing people together.   

    The theme for the conference changes every year, depending on what is trending and what is important in the field. Join us for Denmark’s most inspirational human experience conference that covers subjects like user experience, content, strategy, and research. We will present you with two days filled with superb content from 20+ speakers, hands-on workshops, inspiration, networking, new knowledge, and new insights. We hope to see you in Copenhagen for two days full of exciting and inspirational talks and workshops! https://uxcopenhagen.com.

    UX Forum Copenhagen



    Sep 13 - Present


    I am the founder of this informal meetup for sharing UX knowledge. We take turns hosting a workshop or presentation about six times a year. The sessions are always free, however I do like to know how many people will be attending so there is enough cake.

    At each meeting, a different UX methodology will be presented and tried. Afterwards, there will be a group discussion about the method, and about our findings.

    Before ending the two-hour meeting, we will find our next topic, presenter, and meeting place. If you have any suggestions for topics, or if you have a topic you would like to present, please don't hesitate to contact me!
