Talk from Stavros Garzonis. Talk starts at 7:10pm. We're meeting at cxpartners on Anchor Road.
It’s no surprise that observing users interacting with digital products can be eye-opening for designers, product owners and C-level chaps. However, empathising behind a one-way mirror is limited comparing to an environment set up for collaboration and creativity. Getting users and client stakeholders in the same room entails risks but can be a very valuable tool to have in your UX toolbox.
In this talk, Stavros will discuss his experiences and offer practical tips about planning and facilitating co-design workshops, where clients and users get together to co-create.
Stavros is a scientist trapped in user experience consultant’s body. He has been studying, teaching and practicing User Experience since 2002, building a diverse skill-set of UX research, design, management and mentoring. As a Senior UX Consultant at cxpartners, he works with international brands delivering user research and design, but particularly hooked on the sweet-spot in-between.
Stavros also strongly believes in the value of community in UX (and in life). He was the President of UXPA UK and co-chair of UXPA 2014 International conference, and still actively involved as a UX Google Expert.
