About this session

A practical session to improve your design reviews and convince others

As a UX Designer you need to convince others of your ideas and concepts all the time. Sadly, not everyone can envision the amazing potential your new concept offers. Let’s figure out how you might change that.

The main idea is to practice presenting and get real feedback from strangers. If that sounds scary, you should definitely consider joining ;) It’s one of the best ways to grow and improve.

What to expect

  1. I’ll share some tips and tricks that have worked well for me
  2. Then you’ll practice pitching and presenting with focus on design reviews
  3. You’ll get structured, candid feedback and recommendations on how to improve
  4. Hopefully you’ll walk away as a future rockstar presenter

Requirements to participate

It would be great if you can bring an example of what you’d typically use to pitch a new idea or concept to your team/stakeholders. You’ll use that to practice in small groups. Whatever you use, be it digital or print outs - bring it along.
If you are concerned, bring an old or outdated example.

Experience level

Probably most relevant for young professionals. That being said, if your presentations often get derailed, you might want to drop by nonetheless.

Our recommendation:

Please head to your breakout session room 10 minutes ahead of the start time to keep everything on schedule and make sure you get a seat, as space is limited in each room except the main stage. Thank you!
