Presentations and workshops

I give presentations and workshops to communicate information and to persuade audiences to take action. I give workshops, presentations, and lightning talks on topics such as user research, user-centred design, and accessibility.

As much as possible I follow Allison Ravenhall‘s tips on Inclusive design for accessible presentations.

Presentations and workshops with links to videos, slides and blog posts, are listed on a timeline below.

The intersection of AI and product design

The intersection of AI and Product Design: How ChatGPT and similar tools could change how we do things much sooner than we imagined.
In this session, we introduce recent developments in AI, including some background on the technologies and how they function. We also discussed how AI is likely to change the way we operate as design professionals, and provided examples of how practitioners have already started experimenting with and implementing AI in their work. Finally, we engaged in breakout discussions to co-discover specific ideas about the pros and cons of how AI could change our profession.

In public speaking I sometimes fear:

That no one learns anything, and the audience is starkly aware of it.

Do you have fears like those mentioned in Lara Hogan’s excerpt of Demystifying Public Speaking? Leave a comment. What helps turn that fear around?
