Ashley Firth speaks about Accessible Design & Development

Accessible Design & Development
In a few short years, Octopus Energy has gone from a small, unknown challenger energy supplier to an award-winning tech unicorn, with a global brand and millions of customers. This talk will cover how they brought inclusive tech and experiences to the regulated energy space, through the setup and global rollout of the pattern libraries for their retail and SaaS brands - Octopus & Kraken.
