Anniversary Meetup

Schedule: The door will be opened at 6:15pm, and we will start with food and drink first. Talks and Q&A will commence at 6:45pm followed by group discussion afterwards.


Yuan Wang - How to change your mind and build creative confidence
Creativity is not a gift exclusive to artists and designers. It is in fact a skill everyone can learn, including people who see themselves as analytical. In this talk I will share 10 habits of successful creative people and real-life examples of how these have led to successful outcomes in the business, design and technology world.

Yuan is Creative Director and co-founder of digital agency Yump. His core experience includes facilitating digital strategy workshops and art-directing digital marketing campaigns, cross-platform solutions, responsive websites and mobile apps. Career highlights include industry recognition from Create Awards, AIMIA Awards, FWA.com and AIPP Australian Professional Photography Awards. He is also passionate about user-centred designs, collaborative design workshops and agile principles. Yuan was previously Head of Digital at Traffic advertising agency.


Dave Sharpe - Web Design Retrospective 
On the first anniversary of Be Responsive let’s take a look back at the year of responsive web design and how it's fast become just best practise.  The accomplishments, the hurdles, the battles still being fought and sharing some of the lessons the team at Isobar have learned along the way.

Dave has been working in the web space for over a decade.  Initially playing in design and back end before finding his passion in front end.  He doesn't get to code as much as he used to but now enjoys crafting solutions for many of the projects at Isobar where he heads up the front end team.
 


Group Discussion 
During group discussion, we will raise questions, and get everyone's opinion about certain topics. Feel free to submit your own questions or discussion topics. Tweet it to @beresponsiveio using hashtag #brmelb, and we will choose the best one to discuss.


Directions: The easiest way is to go up the Southern Cross Station stairs (Pic 1), which is located at Bourke St & Spencer St. Once you are at the top, walk across the bridge towards Etihad Stadium, and the first building on your right is the NAB building (Pic 2). When you've entered the building, take the escalator one level up to Level 3, and 'The Hall' will be on your right. We will put some Be Responsive signs in front of 'The Hall' to help you all find us easily.

    Thank you for joining us at our anniversary meetup last night. It's been a fun journey organising Be Responsive over the last 12 month. I'm really glad that I managed to overcome my fear, and able to start Be Responsive meetup. The responses that we've got from you guys have been amazing, and we are committed to improve Be Responsive to be even better. If you have any feedback or suggestion please share it with the team, it'll be very helpful. One thing that we really want to get your feedback urgently is about future topics. We have set up this survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/723F9BF. It's only 4 questions, but it'll really help us moving forward. So please give us 5-10 minutes of your time, and fill up the survey. Thank you so much!
