—Russ Pike, Introduction to UX Design attendee

Introduction to User Experience

Full-day workshop

More than ever, executives and managers are realising that the User Experience (UX) of their products and services is crucial to the bottom line, and that that experience can be designed. As a result, it’s not only UX designers that are in demand—being able to "talk the lingo" of UX has become a necessity for doing business. The ability to leverage basic UX techniques is helping professionals in a range of disciplines be more attuned to their customer, more empowered to communicate, and more energised by their work.

UX Sketching: Supercharge Your Visual Thinking

Full-day workshop

Written notes are boring. Learn to combine words and pictures into rich, memorable, visual notes, while sharpening important business skills such as listening, processing, and sketching.

Reading a book or looking at someone else’s notes won’t help you improve your own sketching skills. To really improve your visual thinking skills, you need to roll up your sleeves and practice. A workshop is the perfect opportunity to refine your visual literacy, with expert guidance.

With this workshop, you'll be able to tackle UX projects armed with sketching skills that will help you in the board room and beyond.

Inspiring Innovation

Full-day workshop

As the expectations of good customer experiences increase, it becomes critical that businesses listen and respond to their customers. In-depth research and a customer-led approach provide valuable insights, but how exactly can we make a proactive leap into new ideas and features? How can our business teams combine their existing knowledge and experience to maximise the benefit of customer-led innovation?

UX Mastery provides a workshop that enables your team to explore challenges and respond with fresh but robust ideas that aren't just copied trends. Don't miss out.

About the Instructors

About Matt

After completing a Masters degree in Engineering, Matt began his web career in the corporate world, evangelising web standards and accessibility at companies like IBM and PricewaterhouseCoopers long before it was trendy to do so. He began embracing user-centred design techniques during his time at SitePoint after editing The Usability Kit, and went on to apply them to spin-off companies such as 99designs and Learnable.

In 2010, Matt founded Useractive, a boutique user experience design agency that helps create exceptional digital experiences for brands such as Australia Post, IMA Management & Technology, and MYOB. He has presented at a range of conferences including Microsoft REMIX, Tech•Ed, UX Australia, Webstock, Web Directions and Intranets2013.

Matt lives with his wife and two daughters, and spends his evenings pretending he’s a cartoonist. He recently wrote, illustrated and self-published a children’s book.

About Luke

General tinkerer, web tailor, user-centred design soldier and tall-ship sailor, Luke Chambers is one half of the founding partnership behind UX Mastery. He learned his collaborative, visual thinking and storytelling skills while studying filmmaking at the Victorian College of the Arts.

He has worked in the web industry since his first startup in 1999, and adopted a user-centred design approach while trying to work out how to improve the quality of his work. He has since championed user experience design on hundreds of projects, both guerrilla and corporate, and consults through his agency Experia Digital. He enjoys tinkering with code, sailing tall ships, learning the English broadsword, writing retro detective fiction and creating lists (lots of lists).

Throughout his day he listens, sketches, tells stories and explains to people the “why” of the design that happens behind the visuals. He lives in a tumbledown farmhouse in Melbourne with his wife, and has three chooks.
