On the Road: Universal Mind Sponsors Big Design in Dallas
Beginning on September 8 and running through September 10, the Crowne Plaza in Addison, TX will play host to Big Design, a conference designed to provide UX and usability professionals, digital marketers, designers, content specialists and developers with additional tools and resources to excel in their respective fields.
This is the second year that Universal Mind is sponsoring Big Design and this opportunity provides exposure to a diverse mix of industry brainiacs, well-known authors, web influencers, application developers and Oscar & Emmy winners.
Over 80 different speakers will take the stage over the two and a half day event, presenting to the estimated crowd of 1,000 attendees, on topics such as the “Zen of UX,” rapid prototyping, design and customer experience and more.
Of the many speakers addressing the conference, Universal Mind is proud to have several experts take the stage. Jesslyn Beattie, UX Director, is slated to present “The Language of Leadership” on Friday, June 9 at 11 am in the Trinity Ballroom, and will explore how to cultivate leadership abilities, expand one’s sphere of influence and speak the ‘language of leadership.’
On Saturday, September 10, Shelley Staten, Director of Agile Services and Matt Kortering, UX Specialist are slated to present “How UX Fits in a Scaled Agile Framework” at 3 pm in the Addison Lecture Hall. Attendees will learn how tying SAFe to UX can break silos, empower individuals and create software at a repeatable rapid pace while ensuring the entire team is driving toward and delivering on one main goal.
Universal Mind is also hosting a Happy Hour on Friday, September 9th for attendees of Big Design, in the Sycamore Room and Patio of the Crowne Plaza to celebrate the conclusion of the first day of the conference. Guests will have the chance to connect with event speakers, authors, VIPs and make new connections while enjoying some great conversation and complimentary drinks. Afterward, Big Design attendees will have the chance to check out the ExposeUX Premiere in the Trinity Ballroom.
