Description

Women Talk Design Lightning Talks (Boston)

Tuesday, March 3rd, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM


Women Talk Design and Ladies that UX Boston invite you to join us for an evening of talks by new and experienced speakers, on topics in UX design.

Our Lightning Talks event offers an opportunity for new and experienced speakers to practice a short talk, in front of a safe supportive audience. We invite you to be that supportive audience!

The evening will kick off with an opportunity to meet others in attendance, before diving into the talks. Speakers have been invited because they are delivering a talk for the first time, testing out new material, or looking for practice before presenting their talk in front of a larger audience. We invite the audience to be present and supportive, learn something new, and engage with the community. You'll also have an opportunity to provide feedback to the speakers and continue conversations after the talks.
