Service Design Snippet – Kevin Meehan

Kevin Meehan recently completed our Professional Development Award in Service Design, a 6 month course that covers the core skills, tools and mindsets you need to service design powerful interventions for complex issues.

It was great to hear from Kevin last week about how his learning has benefited him and the student loans company he works for.

“Since completing the course, and implementing the techniques and methods learned I have managed to secure a new role within the company as a UX designer.”

Kevin also said;

“This wouldn’t have been possible without access to the PDA, so thanks to all at SDA, but especially Chris and Claire for all the help and guidance provided.”

We’re so glad to hear that our PDA helped Kevin secure his new role within the business, and wish him every success.

If you have a service design success story please share your good news.
