Lessons Learned Anne Vroegop, director of UX Academy, will share her lessons learned since she started as an interaction designer in 2004.

She often uses web game principles to stimulate immersive interactions between commercial brands and customers. Her specialties: Web gamification, UX, Concepting, Interaction Design, Engagement, Mobile apps, User Participation. https://www.linkedin.com/in/annevroegop The power of mentorship: A mentee and mentor tell their story Ladies that UX Amsterdam started a mentorship program in April of this year. Anouschka volunteered as a mentor. Roxana was and still is her mentee. The mentorship program boosted their confidence in work and even in their personal life. It seems obvious, that’s what it’s for, but what makes it a success? Roxana and Anouschka will both share the fears, failures, and successes they’ve encountered. And one thing is for sure; if UX is about engagement and empathy, mentorship definitely exceeds this! Anouschka Scholten is the owner of Userneeds and an independent sr. Interaction Designer, UX Consultant, -trainer and -coach with 20+ years experience in the field of UX. She is passionate to get anyone who has anything to do with online- or product development, in a user-centered mindset. She empowers people and organizations to make products and services that have a positive impact on how people work and live. https://nl.linkedin.com/in/anouschkascholten Anouschka on twitter: @anous Roxana Cociorba is a User Experience designer, and Ladies that UX Amsterdam co-organiser, with a strong interest in empathy, storytelling and emergent technologies. She believes that design is the 'art of problem-solving’. https://www.linkedin.com/in/roxanacociorba Host: Lab Digital has 15 years of experience in digital and e-commerce: "Innovation is in our blood, combined with a strong instinct for high quality.

The program of the evening is: 18:30 - Doors open drinks & diner (let us know if you want to join for diner please) 19:00 - Welcome by LTUX & host 19:15 - Lessons learned by Anne Vroegop 20:00 - The power of mentorship by Anouschka Scholten and Roxana Cociorba 21:00 - Drinks and good conversation Location: Lab Digital is based on Kanaalweg, where there is a multi-functional business centre (bedrijventerrein). Kanaalweg 14G,[masked] KL Utrecht Parking: There is enough parking space available Public transpor from Utrecht CS: Due to road repair work, the nearest bus stop Europaplein Noord is no longer available. In stead you would best take the tram or bus (line 10) and get out at bus stop Vasco da Gamalaan. That’s a 10 minute walk to Digital lab. If you come by car: From the city side, you cannot use the Europalaan, so check your route. From the other side (Europaplein) Europalaan is available. By bike: Coming by bike is the fastest way to reach Digital Lab from Central Station at this moment. But keep in mind that a part of the Kanaalweg is also blocked. So best to bike via the Croeselaan and then cross the Balijebrug and turn left after this bridge to get to the Kanaalweg. Accessibility: There are no steps, so it's easily accessible
