A Journey of Design Transformation

What does it mean to provide a "world-class experience" for Thomson Reuter's customers?  Bob Schukai, Global Head of Mobile Technology at Thomson Reuters, will talk about the extraordinary journey that the corporation embarked on 3 years ago to transform its culture from one that was old-fashion and silo'ed, adverse to innovation and disconnected from its customers, to one today that is organized, efficient and innovation-driven.

With visual examples that show the contrast between Thomson Reuters' mobile products today from before, Bob will describe both the soft measures the team took to build trust and demonstrate expertise and the hard measures such as changing technologies and processes including governance. 

Join us to learn more about Bob's thoughts on innovation, wearable technology, and how the team used design workshops to catalyze breakthrough innovation in mobile design and beyond for Thomson Reuters.

Deadlines, Transfers, & Policies

All registration activities are handled by our volunteers. Please be advised that on the day of the event, we'll do our best to accommodate late requests, but our primary focus will be on day-of-event logistics.

Regular registration closes the day before the event or when we reach capacity, whichever happens first.

We provide attendee lists to security staff and print name tags on around noon the day of the event, therefore refund requests can only be taken until the day before the event (send refund requests to RSVP@nycupa.org). We regretfully cannot offer refunds to people who cancel on the day of the event. You have until 11AM the day of the event to transfer your ticket to someone else by sending the name of your transferee to RSVP@nycupa.org. We will do our best to accommodate, but we can't guarantee that all transfer requests will be honored. 

Seating Capacity & Wait Lists

Seating capacity changes with every venue. If an event sells out beforehand, a wait list may be set up and managed by us on a discretionary basis. Signing up on the wait list does not guarantee a seat; we'll do our best to keep wait-listers informed about the status of available seating.

Registration for this event is online. If you choose to come to the event on a walk-in basis, please bring exact change and be advised that a seat is not guaranteed.


This event may be video-recorded. NYC UXPA reserves the right to use any video footage and/or photography obtained during our events and networking activities on our website or any other community-sharing website, including but not restricted to Facebook, LinkedIn, Vimeo, YouTube, and Flickr in order to promote the visibility of our organization.

On rare occasions a presenter may need to cancel at the last minute. This can happen due to air travel delays, client emergencies, or other factors beyond our control. NYC UXPA will make every effort to secure a backup speaker if this occurs. If a backup speaker can't be found, NYC UXPA will issue a refund.
