Sean Buch

With a passion for scaling design teams through authentic leadership, Sean built the UX Practice at Entelect, a global technology consulting firm. Starting from scratch, he grew the team to over 40 talented designers, embedding human-centred practices into the company. He is now an independent consultant and small business owner, solving problems for customers across the globe.

His enthusiasm extends beyond the present, delving into Speculative Design and Futures Thinking. Here, he leverages his experience in Design Thinking and Design Sprint methodologies to explore tomorrow. Sean’s motivation for exploration is rooted in a desire to address the Wicked Problems that may not yet be apparent but are becoming inevitable, driven by disastrous environmental practices, unchecked capitalism, and the rampant use of AI and social media.

His deep love for science fiction in indie games, novels, and film informs his passion for envisioning what lies ahead. As Isaac Asimov eloquently stated, “There is an art to science, and science in art; the two are not enemies but different aspects of the whole.” Sean firmly believes that design and engineering are crucial to solving future challenges. Sean has an MA in Fine Arts and continued skills development at The Interaction Design Foundation.
