Innovation That Matters

Should innovation really be your top priority? Do you have what you need to innovate? Are you UX designers in a position to innovate? What do we even mean by innovation?

This talk will tackle many of these questions and discuss when and how to innovate, and what innovation means in the fast-paced world of digital technology.
The speaker will leverage examples from his past experience at startups, IBM, Microsoft, and Google will be used to illustrate and inform.

Date: Thursday, October 14th
Time: 13:15 - 14:00
