Running Great Review Meetings with Clients & Partners

A session at IA Summit 2013

Sunday 7th April, 2013

9:30am to 10:15am (EST)

No matter how great your designs are, the way you communicate with your clients/business partners can make or break your engagement, especially as our design challenges and organizations become more complex.

But what actually makes some meetings go well, and others not? We’ve heard “Be storytellers,” “Provide the right context,” and “Set expectations,” but what does that look like in practice?

I’ll provide real-life examples of how we’ve done this in our presentations for client engagements. We’ll include examples of our fundamental concepts we live by. No surprises. Over-communicate. Tell them how to be and what to do in the meeting. Design every slide of a presentation, not just the “designs.” Tell a story. Assume your clients have no idea what this meeting is all about (put yourself in their shoes).

It always goes better when you’re well prepared; we’ll help you get there.
