Upcoming Talks and Workshops

Maximising the impact of your user research


As research practitioners, we tend to have more conversations about research methods, but without the skills to connect, communicate and influence our stakeholders and teams, our impact may be limited.

In this hands-on workshop, Ruth will be guiding you through a framework on how to maximise the impact of research. You’ll be working with others to share stories and brainstorm approaches and tactics. Leave this workshop with tools you can bring to your team to affect change straight away.
