Talk UX is taking place at Manchester Town Hall on Thursday 5 March 2015. The aim is to provide a relaxed open space to meet, learn and collaborate in an informal way, and learn more about UX.
Talk UX is the first conference from Ladies that UX and seeks to create a platform where women’s work in the field is promoted. It will examine the different areas which make up a UX role, from research to data schema, to highlight the breadth of knowledge in our field.
We will not be talking about women in technology per se, as the conference is open to everyone. It just happens to be that all our speakers are female, including Yvonne Caravia (head of mobile UX at Bloomberg – pictured, centre), Hannah Tempest (creative director at Mubaloo), Makayla Lewis (postdoctoral research assistant at Royal Holloway University of London) and Alberta Soranzo (director of UX at We Are Friday – pictured, right), to name but a few.
This means that our line up is full of industry leaders you will not have heard before. They will be discussing privacy, designing for children, education and your digital afterlife, to name a few.
At a price of just £40 plus VAT, it’s a great opportunity for anyone to learn about current themes within the industry. Lunch is provided and there are loads of cool things to play with, including a pair of Oculus head sets and Abby the IAs latest book.
To recognise the impact that Manchester is having within technology, and that it is the founding city of Ladies that UX, we felt it was the right place to hold our first conference.
With the Saint Peter’s Square tram station right outside the venue, and Manchester Piccadilly station (15min connection to Manchester Airport) a short walk the conference is easy to get to from any part of the city, or Europe.
We look forward to seeing you on the day.
