Lillian’s passion is using human-centred, data-driven design for social innovation. Over the last 20 years, she has led teams and designed for a variety of services and products. Before joining ThinkPlace, Lillian designed smarter healthcare systems based in artificial intelligence at IBM Watson Health, and created predictive, personalised financial products at Intuit, empowering individuals to take control of their own finances.

In addition, Lillian managed events for SheSays, a global creative network focused on the engagement, education and advancement of women in creative and technology. She has curated events in New York and San Francisco, bringing women together for mentorship, networking, courses, career management and collaboration.
