2020 Guest Speaker Series featuring UX expert Michael Longe
Hi UX designers in Seattle and surrounding areas! As the local leader of IxDF Seattle, I am planning monthly guest-speaker meetups at which we learn from industry leading experts.
In March I am pleased to announce that Michael Longe has agreed to speak on one of two topics:
1. "Think Like an Inventor." A little cross-training exercise that takes best practices for drawing up patent applications and applies it to brainstorming, problem-solving, and design.
2. Five Whys for UI. Drawing from Toyota's renowned problem-solving processes to think anew about our understanding of user workflows, wants, and needs.
"Michael is an accomplished design leader and team manager with hands-on experience in UX design, research, and rapid prototyping for mobile, embedded, and desktop/Web platforms, as well as an MBA focused on Technology Entrepreneurship. In addition to daily duties in Design Ops, his knowledge and interests span Cloud-connected devices, assistive and augmentative technologies, and robotics. Michael is currently pausing to consider where his next UX Director role should be."
Regarding the two topics, indicate which you'd prefer in the discussion notes! Also, if you sign up to attend, please attend!
I look forward to meeting you in the near future and if you'd like to potentially speak at a meetup, send me a message! Happy 2020!
