About this Event

About Women Talk Design Speaker Stories

There isn’t one singular path to public speaking. Folks decide to speak for a variety of reasons, get started in different ways, and have their own techniques for preparing for talks and dealing with nerves.

Learn about the journeys and experiences of incredible women and nonbinary speakers with our new series: Women Talk Design Speaker Stories. Join us each week as we interview one of our speakers to learn the topics they are currently speaking about and why, how they find speaking opportunities, their advice for getting started with public speaking, and more.

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your own questions and connect with folks from the Women Talk Design community. We hope you’ll leave inspired to share your own ideas and experiences, and get out there and speak.

Stick around after the conversation for breakout discussions. During this time you can connect with other people in the Women Talk Design community and discuss what you learned.

Agenda

About our Speaker

As a Principal Creative Director at Microsoft, Ovetta Sampson works with a team of talented researchers, designers and engineers which works with large-scale customers to visualize a clear path to digital transformation that starts in the now and builds towards the future.

An IDEO alumna, Ovetta’s sweet spot is the intersection of humanity, business and technology. She uses a variety of research, design and engineering methods to inspire innovation in various industries including, mobility, retail, service, insurance and health care. She also specializes in envisioning human-centered experiences for future technologies.

Combining her M.S. in Computer Science (HCI) with her BA in Communications, Ovetta spends most of her time helping people visualize humanity’s future and how to ethically and with compassion serve people through digital and intelligent products. When not working or teaching, Ovetta is swimming, biking and running, in exotic locales, and occasionally, doing these races called Ironmans.

Ovetta has spoken at the 99U conference, UX Research Collective, EPIC, AfroTech, and TEDx Chicago.
