I'm looking forward to seeing those of you attending the "Managing UX Teams" Breakfast Club gathering tomorrow morning. We are very fortunate to have the following guest experts join us:
Jose Caballer is the Chief Education Officer and co-founder of The Skool, an online education company that aims to teach the standard process for successful web projects. He studied graphic design at Art Center College of Design. He has worked with diverse clients such as Al Gore, Jamie Oliver, Thomas Keller, Alice Waters and corporate client like Disney, Nike and Myspace.
Today he combines his 16 years of experience and his passion for teaching Web Design on his show This Week in Web Design and in training thousands of students, freelancers, and professionals at TheSkoolRocks.com.

Hannah Galloway manages a UX design team for the Capital Group Companies' American Funds product group in downtown Los Angeles. Over the past 10+ years, she has managed complex design projects and diverse teams for Symantec, Sapient and Critical Mass.
Michael Macadaan is the UX & Design Partner at Science Studio in Santa Monica where he and his UX team design products. Prior to Science, he was the VP of User Experience and Design for Myspace. In this role, Mike was at the forefront of developing contextually appropriate methods towards attracting and developing top talent, user research, interface standards and improving the product experience. This served as the foundation for moving the offering from the legacy social network to a social entertainment destination.
Before joining us on Saturday at Cafe Laurent, please take a look at the menu and make your selection in advance. This will help us save time.
Only those with an "attending" RSVP status may join the event. If you are interested in the gathering and it's full, please join the waiting list. Spots often become available at the very last minute. Because those attending have paid a refundable deposit, I will be taking attendance.
Right now the waiting list has 24 members on it. Due to the strong interest in this topic, it's likely we will feature this topic again. So, if you don't get a spot for tomorrow's gathering, don't fret.
