UserZoom is very proud to sponsor the inspirational and painstakingly curated conference, Enterprise UX 2018, which takes place on June 13-15, 2018 in San Francisco, CA.

Why should you attend?

There’s a lot of good stuff here, so let’s highlight some of the things we’re most excited about…

  • Enterprise UX doesn’t cover basic UX skills, instead it provides models of success from leading enterprise organizations like IBM, GE, Salesforce, 18F and SAP.
  • As well as focusing on helping designers and researchers impact enterprises, this conference relies heavily on user research to guide its programme of speakers and content. This year’s four themes are building UX within the enterprise, communicating UX, investing in UX and scaling UX.
  • It’s three full days of learning and fun—ranging from topic tables, an active Slack channel, a mentoring booth, happy hour, a karaoke evening and a walking tour of San Francisco.
  • You can build a network of some of the best minds working in enterprise design today, with 60% of attendees hold mid- and senior-level enterprise design positions.
  • Diverse perspectives and experiences are encouraged, and speakers are asked to prepare their presentations months in advance. Highlights include:
    • The opening keynote ‘Cleaning Up Our Mess: Digital Governance for Designers’ will be delivered by Lisa Welchman, internationally-recognized author, speaker and management consultant, who is a leading pioneer and thought leader in the field of digital governance.
    • ‘Communicating the ROI of UX within a large enterprise and out on the streets’ by JD Buckley, Principal, UX Strategy & Research, ADP Innovation Center
    • ‘Standardizing Product Metrics For Leaders, Designers and Everyone’ by Jennifer Cardello, Head of Design Ops, athenahealth
    • Plus there’s a closing keynote from Richard Buchanan, Professor of Design, Management & Innovation, discussing ‘Creativity and Principles in the Flourishing Enterprise’.

  • There’s a full day of helpful pre-conference workshops to get stuck into on June 13 at the nearby Palace Hotel. Topics include Integrated Data Thinking, Scalable Design Systems and Facilitation for
