Join us on March 6 to hear how PitchBook’s UX team learns more about their users through the creation of Experience Maps!

Experience maps fulfill several purposes in the design process. At PitchBook, these serve to illuminate the complete experience a person may have with a product, service, or routine. It can be used to educate, identify opportunities for innovation, and highlight pivotal moments.

We’ll discuss getting stakeholder buy-in, how maps are created, and getting real-life results from these maps. We hope you’ll join us to learn how you can adapt these strategies to your own team, and enable your entire organization to gain a better understanding of your users.

You can find me in the city during the work week, absorbing all things design and eating all the snacks. Evenings and weekends you might catch me slashing pow, or on my mountain bike at the local trails. Cheers!
