Pieter den Heten

UX Consultant (Executive Producer)


I’ve spent my career leading teams to deliver world-class digital products for government, corporates and startups across Europe and Asia Pacific. Companies and organisations I’ve worked with include the Australian and Dutch Government, Canon, DriveMyCar, Ernst & Young, Elsevier, General Assembly, IAG, Nielsen, NRMA, Optus, Shell, Telstra and Toyota. My experience spans most digital disciplines: I’ve worked as a web designer, front-end developer, project manager, business analyst, marketing communications advisor and UX lead and architect.

My hybrid background gives me a thorough understanding of the end-to-end delivery and development process. I intuitively understand the challenges of those managing, as well as those creating digital projects.

Since I started my career, I’ve been a passionate advocate of usability and accessibility. I co-founded Cascadis, a professional association championing web standards and accessibility guidelines within the Dutch government.
