Working in the Tension: Negotiating Craftsmanship and Progress with Jay Oldaker
UX Designers are under constant pressure these days. Technology is evolving at increasing rates of change, and audience attention spans are shorter by the moment. As a UX Designer, how do you deal with the flux and change? You want to stay sharp, but is it wise to pursue the next shiny object or is that just a distraction? What about working in teams where responsibilities, expectations, and opinions vary? Jay Oldaker is the Lead User Experience Designer at Westfield Insurance. He has over 13 years of experience working as a product manager, information architect, and user experience designer. He’s focused on customer centricity and innovation. Networking and Food: 6:00 PM Presentation starts: 6:30 PM Wrap-up, Q+A: 7:30 PM
