Akshay Kore

I am a Product design leader and Author with extensive experience crafting high-impact AI products. Over the years, I have worked with some great teams at Microsoft, Cleartax, and Observe.AI.

Currently, I lead the design of AI experiences at Suki.AI, where I design and mentor a team of exceptional designers to deliver outstanding products.

As a product design leader, my responsibilities include designing user experiences, implementing design strategies, leading user research initiatives, and running design operations. I am involved in and excel at the zero-to-one development of multiple initiatives.

I also help build product teams, where I aim to create a culture of high performance, extreme ownership, empathy, and a bias for action.
