About Yakari

Portret of Yakari Van Dessel

I worked at iO as a UX professional in strategy, research and design on projects for the federal government, European Commission, Audi and other projects. In 2022, I left iOdigital to sign up for a new challenge at Pàu. Currently I’m working as a UX Strategist at Bold powerd by Ordina.

I have been awarded with UX Design Institute’s Professional UX Diploma in 2021, and with Nielsen Norman Group’s UX Research Certificate in 2022.

I’m now specialising in UX strategy to become a UX professional who can help deliver products and services that go beyond the average and are truly user-centric. Therefore, I attended a specialised program to win over stakeholders and influence decision makers to help bring business closer to user-centric outcomes.

In my daily life, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading books, boxing, and working on my personal development.
