Speaking Experience

You don’t need to be a veteran speaker. We can help you with preparations so you feel confident about delivering a great presentation.

Suggested Topics

We believe today’s designers draw on a range of skills and influences, so we want to present an equally broad range of topics, including but not limited to:

  • Accessibility and inclusion
  • Client and project management
  • Collaboration and communication
  • Content strategy and copywriting
  • Creativity and productivity
  • Front-end development
  • Product and service design
  • User experience and research

Our audience has responded especially well to talks that share personal experiences from projects and offer practical takeaways that are relevant to their own work. We are open to suggestions and happy to help you narrow down a suitable topic.

We won’t accept sales or recruitment pitches.
