Presenting design work: And getting great feedback

Presented at: UX New Zealand 2020
Presentation date: November 20, 2020

As designers, we spend a large amount of time talking about our work – probably as much as doing the work itself. Sometimes our clients understand what we’re talking about and know how to respond, but not always. Sometimes they seem to comment on things that aren’t relevant, aren’t in their expertise, and that we just can’t do anything about.

In this talk, you’ll learn how to present design work in a way that gets great (i.e. critical, not complimentary) feedback every time. It will cover:

  • how to prepare the audience to focus where you want them to
  • how to present the work so they understand it well
  • how to teach them to give great feedback

It’s super-practical and you will be able to walk out with tactics for your very next presentation.
