I had an epic week in New York City last week: happy hour with the Brooklyn UX folks, lunch at Etsy, a visit to General Assembly, the NASDAQ ProDesign conference, hanging out at the SVA Products of Design studio and a few meals with friends. But I’m glad to be back in the warmer climes of home and digging into my work here.
My first priority this week is get the details finalized for my full-up workshop on soft skills, next week at Interaction 15. ‘m also doing this workshop in May at Enterprise UX in San Antonio.
I’m not only leading a workshop at Enterprise UX, I’m also a “theme leader” for the Insight at Scale track. Today we have our first meeting together to look more closely at what each of the speakers intend to cover.
Last week on Dollars to Donuts I spoke with Nancy Frisbherg of Financial Engines. If the production works out (I’m cautiously pessimistic at this point in the week) we’ll have another one on Wednesday. Meanwhile, you can find them all on iTunes and Stitcher.
I’ve got a couple of projects in the sales process, others in the bureaucracy of internal purchasing departments. It’s a pretty good range of interesting collaborations and I’m just trying to be patient!
I’m teaching a workshop on improv, in the interaction design program at CCA on Friday.
