Franny Gant is a user researcher in PDS but she wasn’t always one. She's done loads of jobs from being a carpenter to working at Mumsnet so she's written about how she got to where she is.
We recently held a confidence day, which is one of our cultural values in PDS. We've heard from lots of people in PDS about what confidence means to them so here's what some of our staff had to say.
Laura Bennett is a portfolio manager who's written about retrospectives and why it's important to regularly look back at your work.

Four women from PDS have written about how they're celebrating International Women's Day, what it means to them, and why #BalanceForBetter is so important.

Here in PDS, we’re constantly looking for new ways to solve (old) problems and to engage staff in different ways so we recently held an unconference. Caroline Auty talks about the unconference format and what we got from it.
Kieran Dunlop is a SharePoint Analyst in PDS. He doesn't have an IT background so you might wonder how he got here. He's written this blog post to explain how someone with a music degree ends up working in IT.
