Talk UX | Executive Coaching with AuthenticWorks

Talk UX | Executive Coaching with AuthenticWorks One of the (many) excellent things about attending Talk UX is the opportunity to connect with other women in design and technology and to learn from and be inspired by others’ careers. We’ve got some incredible leaders appearing on stage, who are sure to give you food for thought and help you gain clarity around what might be next for you. But, what if you’re just not sure what the next step is? Or how to take it? Or perhaps you’re dealing with a professional challenge and need help finding your way. What can you do? One answer could be to consider coaching. We’re delighted, for Talk UX 2019, to have Hilary Farrington, founder of AuthenticWorks joining us for a series of free 1 : 1 coaching ‘taster’ sessions.

Interview | Kelsey Bones | Ladies that UX Belfast

Interview | Kelsey Bones | Ladies that UX Belfast This week’s Wednesday Woman of Ladies that UX is Kelsey Bones of the Belfast chapter. Kelsey is a UX Designer at Whitespace and got into UX when she was looking for a job for her placement year at university. Over to you Kelsey... I’d been contacted by a local UX agency who were looking for a placement student. I wasn't sure about UX and wasn’t keen on how much research and documentation was involved. I wanted to be a designer not a researcher! Eventually I was talked into going for it, as I could always practice design in my spare time but there weren't many places where I could immerse myself and really learn about UX. So I went for it and got the placement and spent the next…

Talk UX | BYOB – Bring your own Baby

Talk UX | BYOB - Bring your own Baby Talk UX 2019 - the ideal way to spend maternity leave? Talk UX and Ladies that UX are all about showcasing the experience and expertise of women and bringing together a community of women in the UX field. Ladies that UX started as a way for women (when we say women, we mean anyone identifying as) to find, identify and learn from others in the field and to help increase visibility. With this in mind, we want as many women as possible to be able to attend Talk UX. And we recognise that, when women are on maternity leave, it makes it harder to get along to events like conferences - after all, tiny babies aren’t going to take care of themselves, partners have often returned to work, and…

Interview | Lizzie Kelly-Dyson | Co-Founder of Ladies that UX

Interview | Lizzie Kelly-Dyson | Co-Founder of Ladies that UX Lizzie We’re delighted to be sitting down with Lizzie Kelly-Dyson - co-founder of Ladies that UX. Without Lizzie, there would be no Talk UX - it’s that simple. So if she's talking, we're listening! So Lizzie, for those that don’t know the story, tell us, how did Ladies that UX come to be? Ladies that UX started because Georgie (Lizzie’s Ladies that UX co-founder) and I didn’t know any women in the industry. All meet ups were the same, one person standing at the front telling you what to do and how to do it. After one of the meet ups, Georgie and I went for a drink and we discussed what we would do differently if we were to start our own. I wanted to create a…
