How to do the work you want to do (AKA neglect your selling skills at your own peril)

Session duration:

Fiz Yazdi


About this Keynote

You need well-honed technical skills alongside super soft skills to be a good UXer. But to do great, impactful work you have to convince people to back you - often in highly political or complex scenarios.

We'll discuss how consultative selling skills help you form powerful arguments that cut through organisation inertia and open avenues of work that have been previously blocked, so you get to determine your own future and do the work you want to do.
