Lesley Tully  

Head of Design Thinking at Bank of Ireland  


TALK How Hard Can It Be? 

Designing a meaningful and relevant service experience is equally about crafting an exciting vision as it is about fixing, often very broken processes to make that vision real. With technology changing the way we communicate, consume and interact with financial services it’s a crucial yet difficult role for service design to support the evolving banking experience.
