Founded in 1998, Apogee has consulted on user research projects and UX training globally with the core focus to introduce human centred design into Asia.
As part of this, we also founded UX Hong Kong and we co-founded UXPA China's "User Friendly" conference.
Dan has lectured about user centred design globally. He has co-authored two books including "Global UX" with Whitney Quesenbery and the "Usability Kit" with Gerry Gaffney with both publications covering practical practices that encourage rolling customer understanding as part of both a UX practice and product management and leadership.
Apogee has consulted, trained and written articles based on our experience in domains including banking, hotels, logistics, media, ecommerce, utilities, information technology, mobility, consumer electronics, telecoms, mutual funds, insurance, fashion and furniture to name a few.
