When you’re asked by your boss, or your boss’s boss (your grandboss!) to explain your work with the web, what do you say? How can you build advocates for user experience in people whose pay grades eat pay grades like yours for breakfast? This is the situation Amanda Costello found herself in when her great-grandboss asked her to speak about her work to senior leadership. Spoiler alert: Nobody was fired.

This talk will give you memorable ways of talking about your work that will stick with leadership, even as they navigate their myriad other duties and responsibilities. Build advocacy for user experience and make sure your voice is heard - even when you're not in the room.


6:30 PM to 7 PM - Networking
7 PM to 8 PM -  Presentation
