⚡️Talk: The power of white boarding

As product designers today we most likely spend most of our time in meetings and workshops. I remember the first time I had to use a white board for work and also my first few white boarding challenge - I was terrible at it. In this talk I would like to share some personal experiences and what I learned from my white boarding challenges and also problem solving sessions with product and business.
We will go over some ways to be more confident, strengthen our problem-solving and communication skills. Ultimately to have a starting frame work to be able to facilitate our thinking and share with our audience.

Speaker: Leandro Velasco

Hi! I am Leandro from Toronto and now a Berlin-based designer. I studied graphic design and then eventually found my place in digital. I stared off as a Visual Designer and then the last few years I've been focusing on product strategy, design thinking, user experience and human centred design. My design experience is pretty diverse from design agency to client work. Recently I joined the design team at SoundCloud.

⚡️Talk: Talk: How to design the future of work for unstoppable success, productivity and joy (in simple steps that everybody can take)

A shocking 85% of employees are not engaged in their work. That’s fatal for a good work culture, productivity and growth. This talk shows why New work is often misunderstood and simple steps everybody can take to make the workplace more fun, people-centric and successful.
