with O'Reilly author and #push17 speaker Tom Greever | October 19th
Talking to people about your designs might seem like a basic skill, but it can be difficult to do efficiently and well. And, in many cases, how you communicate about your work with stakeholders, clients, and other non-designers is more critical than the designs themselves – simply because the most articulate person usually wins.
This practical and fun workshop focuses on principles, tactics, and actionable methods for presenting your designs. Whether you design websites, apps or other products, you'll learn how to win over anyone who has influence over the project--with the goal of creating the best experience for the end user. Using techniques from improvisational theatre, we’ll laugh our way through the process of explaining design to the people around us.
What we will achieve
At the end of this workshop, you’ll be more confident in your ability to help stakeholders understand your work. Articulating Design Decisions will equip you to communicate with stakeholders, keep your sanity, and still deliver the best user experience.
