I had the pleasure to attend UX London for the second time last week, and, as with any other Clearleft event, it didn’t disappoint. The speakers, the workshops, the food, and the coffee: ???????? My notes are a bit scattered, as I tried to pay attention to what was being said, and sometimes I forgot…… Continue reading My notes from UX London 2018
Next month I’ll be speaking at View Source Conference. I’ve never visited Portland, or spoken at a Mozilla event for that matter, so when I was invited I jumped at the opportunity, and I can’t wait!

I don’t think this is because the speakers are fundamentally bad, but there are a few things that can be done to make any presentation…… Continue reading How to give a more exciting presentation: a note to speakers
I’ve recently been to my 3rd web conference: Future of Web Design, in London. You can’t say I’m a conference pro — I’ve never been to SXSW or something that big (or even workshops), but I think my experience may be helpful to those of you who’ve never attended a conference and are thinking of…… Continue reading How to always enjoy a conference
