Combine a fascination with people and an obsession to communicate clearly and you’ve got the makings of a phenomenal UX researcher.

Now, throw in usability design experiences for organizations such as the National Cancer Institute and IEEE plus engaging interpersonal skills and you’ve got Whitney Quesenbery. Whom you do NOT want to miss.

Whitney is an authority on creating “designing products where people matter.” In fact, she’s authored two books on the subject—Storytelling for User Experience: Crafting stories for better design and Global UX: Design and research in a connected world—to help practitioners keep users in mind throughout the creative process.

Storytelling for UX

You’ll learn to…

  • Realize that good storytelling takes practice
  • Let stories persuade, by letting your audience think about something new
  • Understand why the most effective stories can happen in awkward places or at inopportune times, because we're simply always telling stories
  • Understand why details you choose to leave out of your story can be as important as those you choose to include
