What apprenticeship experience did you benefit from most?
One of the most beneficial experiences in my professional development was when I had the chance to collaborate with some of the industry’s foremost leaders in experience design during an immersive course in San Francisco. Learning by participation and being able to apply it back to my day to day career was ground breaking.

I am very interested in automation and the connectivity of the internet of things (IoT).
