UXinsight is an international organisation dedicated to UX research. Our mission is to connect UX researchers around the globe.
We aim to create a friendly safe space where we as UX researchers can connect, share and learn.
After working in the field since 2000, Karin den Bouwmeester, the founder of UXinsight, started a UX research consulting agency in 2012 (Userproof). Over the years she offered training and user research services to large enterprises, e-commerce companies, non-profits, agencies and the government.
When coaching and training clients, she noticed that many UX researchers and designers faced similar struggles – being the only one in their company, having to explain the value of UX research, unsure how to tackle certain issues. They were looking for ways to expand their knowledge and connect with like-minded people.
In 2015, Karin started organising local UX research meetups: small gatherings of peers, coming together to exchange, learn and discuss issues at hand. There was so much demand and enthusiasm, that in 2017 this grew into the first conference in Europe dedicated to UX research, and the birth of UXinsight.
Since then, UXinsight hosted in-person and online UX research conferences every year attracting hundreds of UX professionals from all over the world.
With 10+ years of experience providing UX research consulting and training services at her research agency, Karin brought this expertise to UXinsight. UXinsight offers user research training and coaching for individuals as well as organisations.
