Testimonials

"The presentation was great! Thank you so much and I particularly enjoyed the amount of inward facing speculation and was enjoyable to have to write down what you truly believe yourself to be and to give yourself targets for the future."

"I left with really helpful insights and motivation to seek out the next steps in my design journey."

"This is great for anyone who's entering ux design but not especially towards people with a long years experience and wants to pivot career - always fun talking to other people though, it was a good break for me after a long day of work. thanks guys!"
