About the talk

Taking Risks, building resilience and reaping the rewards

- Barbican Centre

Even though you may not end up exactly where you thought you would be at the end of your career, you will probably be able to look back and identify which passions, skills, principles, and opportunities shaped your journey. By consciously curating your own career, you will discover the virtues of developing personal values, leveraging your strengths, managing your own brand, and taking your seat at the table.

Lisa did not expect to end up leading UX teams in large, corporate software firms, but she found a true calling for building design teams that ship great experiences and build revenue and loyalty for the company. And she's learned plenty of lessons along the way. Join Lisa to explore how we can leverage our passions, take risks, and build the right skills that will result in a rewarding career.
