*Bonus talk* by Roxanne GroenenBerg!

As a UX designer you are constantly between the fires of the users, the project managers, the developers and other stakeholders. In this talk Roxanne explains how she dealt with resistance anyone can encounter during a project, and what she especially learned from dealing with these different kinds of heats.
