You'd like to share your story? Yay! Our aim is to grow the practice of UX in New Zealand, and we think this is best done by learning from each other, so thanks for being open to share. We’ve taken on your feedback from last year and have changed the format by making the workshops a bit longer.
This year we’re looking for:
Our audience is largely made up of other UX/Design/CX/SD practitioners, internal teams from corporate, government and product organisations, agencies and students. They like detailed presentations that give them practical learnings to take back to work.
We want talks about user-centered design projects, processes and techniques, especially gnarly ones or ones that have delivered delight!
We want interactive sessions/workshops that share skills, tools or open discussion forums between practitioners.
They might be about (but aren’t limited to!) the following:
How can you keep the audience engaged and entertained? A day of talks can be hard work. We’ve learnt a bit from last year and are going to work on the pacing but what will you do? Will you have questions, an interactive part, voting, an enthralling story, a funny video?
In your proposal to speak you will be asked how you plan to keep the audience engaged.
Anyone with a story! We’re looking for a diverse range of speakers with good stories, we provide speaker coaching so don’t worry if you don’t have much speaking experience - we’ve got you.
We also offer $500 for a long presentation or workshop and $150 for a short one to offer you some reimbursement for your day off work and travel costs - this is paid by invoice after the conference.
We follow UX Australia's way of doing things, because we think they’ve done amazing things for the Australian UX community and practice.
