The talk

What if "stakeholder management" wasn't the pain we all believe it to be, but rather, the key to the future? Kevan presents a proven way to use co-creation, facilitation and design sprints on digital redesigns to achieve massive breakthroughs in schedule, quality and team engagement.

Bringing behind-the-scenes stories from Domain7 on some of higher ed's biggest UX redesigns over the past five years, including the award-winning Regent College and Imperial College London projects, this talk covers the theory and reality about workshops-for-UX.
