***PLEASE read before RSVP*** (Updated 8/14)
Location has been confirmed! See you all at Substantial!
Since this is a free meetup and this will be a popular event, I wanted to address some things. I know charging a small fee is a way to assure people think about their RSVP a bit more, but as you know I strive to keep Learn UX Seattle a free Meetup for you all. That being said, I'd like you to please be considerate when you click RSVP and make sure you can actually make it. And if you find out later that you can't, update your RSVP so others can join.
This meetup will be capped, but there will be a waitlist. Again, thank you for your consideration in checking your schedule before you RSVP.
Ok...now to the good stuff.
Since there was such a good response with our last UX Strategy workshop, let's keep it going with another Strategy-centric meetup.
This month I'm proud to announce that we have my favorite Author, Jaime Levy, to present to us via Skype.
Jaime Levy is a UX Strategy Consultant, Author, College Professor, Public Speaker, and just an overall badass at what she does. I've had multiple opportunities to watch Jaime speak and I can promise you that you're going to learn a lot and enjoy a few laughs while you do so. Spoiler alert: she's pretty funny.
She wrote the book UX Strategy: How to Devise Innovative Digital Products that People Want. This book is currently #1 for UX and UX Design on Amazon ( http://amzn.to/2vgOuHe ). I have read her book multiple times and I am constantly referring to it for my work. This is one of my main references and I'm constantly suggesting it to people that are interested in UX Strategy.
She is currently teaching User Experience Design and Strategy at USC, consulting startups and enterprises through her own consultancy (JaimeLevy.com (http://www.JaimeLevy.com)), and speaking at workshops and conferences worldwide. Between all this and teaching her online Master Strategist course, I am very thankful that Jaime found time to talk to us. This is the perfect followup to our Strategy Workshop last month and I am so excited for this group to meet Jaime.
You can download her free UX Strategy toolkit, see her tour dates, as well as read the first two chapters of her book at: http://userexperiencestrategy.com/

1. Watch this Video of Jaime talking about what it is that she does. It's aptly titled: What the Hell is UX Strategy?! (https://vimeo.com/178863087)
2. (This is the most important one) After all that, please go to this Google Doc Spreadsheet (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1YmE0E5IaN0rrgVDF4ilJF5IITPXG_hxWvmxom8xSIBI/edit?usp=sharing) and type in any questions you have for Jaime. I will be combing through these questions as they are populated to pick some for the moderated part of the conversation.
