Join Us for “UX Vision 2024: Emerging Trends in Design” with Chris Courtney, Lead Product Designer at Glassdoor, a session that promises to be more than just a talk – it’s a journey into the heart of what’s next in UX.

Chris will lead us through a dynamic exploration of critical topics shaping our industry. He’ll delve into the evolving role of AI in our daily lives, transforming from a tool for tinkering to a vital partner in design. Expect to gain insights on ‘Everything Accessible,’ highlighting the importance of universal design principles and ‘Hyper-Personalization,’ where user experiences are tailored more precisely than ever before.

This engaging talk will offer a glimpse into the future, preparing us for the rapidly changing landscape of UX design. It’s an opportunity not just to listen but to engage, think, and get inspired about the possibilities in 2024 and beyond.
