Jenny Cham – Winner 2017

As well as being a great UX designer in her own right Jenny works tirelessly to promote UX in science. It has been an uphill battle at times to introduce new ideas into a culture where is was unknown. Her enthusiasm for the subject and tenacity has paid off both with scientist and software developers. Her work engaging workshops and sketchnotes draw people in and she is then ready to encourage and share her considerable knowledge.

Working with Jenny on the Technical Seminar Programme at EMBL-EBI has been an absolute pleasure. Her attention to detail, planning ability and empathy has been the perfect compliment to my approach rounding off many of the rough corners. We have been able to deliver events that I could have only dreamt of alone. She is a much-valued colleague.
