From Idea to I agree: Thoughts on Communicating UX

A session at UX Lx: User Experience Lisbon 2011

Wednesday 11th May, 2011

2:00pm to 2:20pm (LMT)

As user experience designers, our ideas define us. But without the ability to share our thinking, to persuade, we can end up frustrated wondering why a client couldn't see what we saw. UX comes with particular challenges - when we're often working at a conceptual level - so our ability to communicate our ideas is particularly important.

WHO IS THIS FOR?
Anyone presenting work, whether that be to internal teams (visual design / developers) or clients (internal or external). It's intended to be particularly of use to junior/mid-weight user experience designers. It's not a 'presentation skills' talks, but instead looks specifically at how we communicate UX deliverables in a way that its intended audience can understand, communicate and contribute to.

WHAT WILL PEOPLE GET OUT OF THIS?
Practical advice that attendees can use straight away in presentations whether informal stand-ups or formal client presentations, and improve their UX deliverables.

WHAT WILL BE COVERED:

  • Why we need to avoid the temptation of 'the big reveal'
  • Building an strong, rational argument for our work
  • Understanding who the 'real' audience is for our presentation
  • Giving the client the tools they need to resell your work when you're not there
  • What to show and how to show it
  • How to make it real, personal and memorable
