In a world where the ideals of UX craft are often in tension with the loudest, most immediate business pressures, how can we work together to create the best outcomes despite the circumstances in which we operate?

It's a regular scenario: the client expects an outstanding outcome but prevents the team from achieving that outcomes... not investing in user testing, making constant technology changes and then asking why the project is under performing.

Join Draw Group, who are proud to be a part of leading Management Consultancy ‘Oliver Wyman’, at their Baker Street office and learn about designing for large corporate engagements. We sit down for another fantastic evening of theoretical insight, case studies, discussions and more as we explore some of the biggest frustrations that UX practitioners might typically experience on large corporate engagements and how we work together to mitigate them.

Featuring;

Adrian Oest - Principal Consultant - Oliver Wyman

Kent Valentine - Managing Director - Draw Group

Rob Robinson - Creative Director - Draw Group

Jared Hill - UX Lead - Draw Group
