    Thanks to all speakers and organisers. I found it an inspiring evening, and great to hear about some genuinely meaningful applications of UX, I just wish I'd had the time to hang around at the end.

    Definitely a great event! Had a lot of fun. Really cool talking to the speakers, Jay and Todd. Talking about language as a technology and having a few laughs about LA/New York. Really cool crowd.

    Perfect! I really enjoyed the case studies. Don't know whether it is an arrangement or just coincidences, the 3 pres focused on actual product, digital experiences and service design, which allowed me to get to know the different approaches.
    The only thing is the time, maybe we can keep on the schedule next time so we have some more time for interactions.
