Presenter Jessica Collier, PhD
Jessica Collier, PhD, is the CEO of Spot, an AI reporting tool that makes it safer for employees to speak up and easier for HR to follow up, even on anonymous reports. Jessica is also the co-founder and former VP of Product at All Turtles, a company that builds AI products in San Francisco, Tokyo, and Paris.
Before venturing into entrepreneurship, Jessica was an early pioneer in UX writing, which established language as a defining aspect of the product experience. She previously led UX content and design at Stellar.org, a digital financial network fighting poverty by connecting people to low-cost financial services. She also established the discipline of UX writing at Evernote and wrangled words at Medium. Jessica’s doctoral work on 19th-century Transcendentalism can be directly tied to current trends in Silicon Valley and our narratives around innovation and products.
