***RSVP ON PARTNER EVENTBRITE***
**UX SPEED DATING (NETWORKING) FALL 2019!**
In our efforts to create better connections in the enormous UX community of Los Angeles we are trying something new!
Instead of putting 300 people in a room to passively sit and listen to a great speaker or 150 people scattered in various places in a bar like our previous happy hours, with most leaving without making a meaningful business connection, we're going to try using a mock speed dating format.
We'll give you a set of questions and you'll have 5 minutes to chat with someone you've never met! At the bell, you'll switch partners and continue these quick ice-breaker micro conversations.
Instead of a bar, we've teamed up with Slickdeals who are generously hosting us in their gorgeous offices in Hollywood - with 360º views, great food and drink!
It's our hope this event will lead to creating those quality relationships that help you in your career - long term.
**WHO SHOULD ATTEND?**
• HR Professionals with Open Positions In Their Company
• (NO Recruiters/Agencies/Agents)
• Those Seeking Work (Full time/Freelance/Contract)
• Seeking Networking Connections

• UX, Product Design, Research Professionals

**HERE'S HOW THE EVENING WILL WORK:**
Meet at Slickdeals for food, drink and socialize. You will also receive a set of printed questions when you check and receive your name tag.
Business and Community time! You know the drill - We thank and acknowledge our generous sponsors as well as give YOU an opportunity to share about upcoming events, job openings or if you're looking for a job - to stand up and give us 60 SECONDS about you!
When you received your name tag at check-in, you were given a set of ice-breaker questions. Now you're going to paired off with someone YOU DON'T KNOW. You'll be given 5 minutes to learn as much about each other as possible. You'll have 9 rounds of "UX Speed Dating!" to meet and connect!
More socializing and continued conversations with those you met.
Raffle and Good Night!
**UX SPEED DATING / POST EVENT:**
So that you can keep in contact with each other, we'll make available a spread sheet with your first and last names and LinkedIn URL's of only those that actually attended - so that you can follow up with contacts after the event. As always, we'll post an Event recap page to UXPALA.org website too!
