UX Improv night with Dr. Whalen: How to win UX battles with Psychology

>>>> REGISTER HERE! <<<<

VENUE PARKING — PARKME for Working Village

Parking map and link to Google Map

In this certain-to-be-entertaining and "slide-free" event, we will ask you to share your biggest UX challenges with your boss/developers/marketing team, we will act them out, and let's see what the good doctor, other panelists and audience members might say to win the UX battle in the name of end-users everywhere. 

>If you'd like to submit your "headaches" and scenarios, please fill out this form. All your information and stories will be kept confidential.<

Dr. Whalen has encountered his fair share of crazy situations too. Be sure to ask him about the "dancing monkeys" and also what he did when the CEO of a publicly traded company decided that he we would single-handedly redesign the website of his multi-billion dollar enterprise (yikes!).

Learn how seasoned (and sometimes battle-scarred) UX'ers handle tough situations, have a laugh at the craziness we sometimes face in the corporate world, and arm yourself with some brain science for your next battle.

Note: If you need to refresh yourself on UX challenges or libations, simply consult the:, which can also be played concurrently with the performance.
