Towards the end of 2015 I’d just been contacted by O’Reilly about creating some content related to storytelling in design. A workshop or book was mentioned and I immediately jumped at the workshop idea.
Yesterday I received a newsletter from a conference where the subject was how they don’t pay their speakers, or get paid by them. Some of you will have received it too.
I remember the exact time I stopped feeling “get me out of here” and started feeling “please can I stay” when it came to public speaking. It was during my talk at Dublin Web Summit (as it was called then) back in 2013 and for the first time, I found myself not wanting to leave
The week after we got back from New York in the middle of October I began a period that was full to the brim with really exciting things. Over three weeks I ran 5 workshops and did 1 talk.
Tonight I held a class over at General Assembly here in London with the purpose of providing an overview of the usage patterns and UX principles you need to consider when designing for multiple devices, as well as provide some hands on experience.
In just over a week’s time I’ll be teaching a class over at General Assembly here in London. It’s about designing for multiple devices.
It was the third (or forth time if you count the BBC) that I did my ‘Design for everyone’ talk. I’ve updated it a little every time but the messaging is more or less the same. There are however more details in this version and it got a feature on the Slideshare home page.
Last week I was invited to speak at the Polish IA Summit together with some great speakers and I happily accepted.
Late last summer .net Magazine asked me if I’d like to write an opinion piece for them and I happily said yes. Today my piece was published.
As I mentioned the other day this week is Internet Week Europe and today I did a revised version of my EuroIA talk ‘Designing for everyone, anywhere, at any time’.
On Monday next week Internet Week Europe kicks off in London. From Monday to Thursday The Hospital Club will hold panels, demos, talks, classes and interactive installations.
Last Friday I did my first public speaking at the EuroIA Summit in Prague. The idea for the talk came on a day where we’d been discussing structure and delivery of content to meet diverse needs at work.
One of the reasons I started to freelance is to have a bit more time for side projects, writing and speaking. Who knows, perhaps one day even follow in my dad’s footsteps and write a book.
In September I’ll be speaking at the EuroIA summit for the first time. I’m more than a little excited. The abstract for my talk together with the other speakers are up at the EuroIA website and also included below.
