Why UXDX?

Mission driven

Everything that we do is around finding better ways to make change happen in organisations. Cross-functional conferences with real industry case studies is one part of making that change happen.

Giving back

It's not just about the big conferences - they help us to run free community events around the world to help more people and teams, as well as help people begin their speaking journey.

Practical

Sometimes you see the same people speaking at every conference. They are often great - but we prefer the people doing the work. That's why we'd love to hear about you and your experiences.

Diverse

We work hard to ensure that our agenda has people speaking of all types of identities, abilities, races, religions and otherwise. But they have one thing in common - they're all phenomenal in their work.

Support

We care about your speaking experience - from upfront speaking guides, to feedback on drafts to helping you make connections in the industry. We work with you to deliver on your goals.

Personal

We are a small team - you'll get to know us all as you begin your journey with us. And we pride ourselves on the fact that we call a number of our past speakers friends.

Audience Roles

It takes a full product team to build a successful product so we target Product, UX, Design and Development roles.

Audience Metrics: Product: 21%, UX: 22%, Design: 19%, Development: 20%, Project: 11%, Other: 7%

Audience Seniority

We have a large contingent of senior decision-makers as well as the people doing the work, who have a strong say in the products and services they use.

Seniority Metrics: CEO/Founder: 4%, C-Suite: 12%, Senior Management: 27%, Experienced Practitioner: 55%, Junior: 2%

Company Size

As companies scale they begin to slow down because they start creating silos and adopting waterfall ways of working. We demonstrate how companies can scale without losing the competitive product team structures.

Company Size Metrics: Enterprise: 46%, Large: 20%, Medium: 14%, Small: 13%, Startup: 5%, Self-Employed/Freelance: 2%

What we're looking for

Theory is great - but we want tangible actions that people can take away. That is why we have a strong preference for case studies that show the details and gritty challenges that you faced adopting a new approach and the benefits that it is now delivering.

We break out the content for the conferences into the following areas:

Product Vision
Uncover the customer's underlying needs, then find the intersection between those needs and the current business objectives. It is key for everyone on the team to be involved to ensure alignment and avoid unnecessary rework.
Continuous Discovery
Customer needs shift rapidly and therefore continuous quantitative and qualitative research needs to be conducted by the team. The biggest waste in product development is building the wrong thing, but this research will give insights that will enable more effective product decisions.
Continuous Design
Design is more than just pixels, it's about taking the customer problems identified in the research findings and solving these issues. Teams need to ideate together to generate the best solutions, and quickly prototype and validate them before committing to expensive builds.
Continuous Delivery
Good architecture is critical for a sustainable product, but that doesn't mean Big Design Up Front. By providing guidelines and boundaries, teams can be empowered to react to changing requirements while ensuring high quality and secure technical designs.
Launch
You aren't done when you release the code - you're only done when the code has made the expected impact. Teams need to track the metrics identified when ideating in order to validate the effectiveness of each release.
Enabling the Team
During the change from projects to product teams, it is necessary to ensure that the people in your teams are being supported and enabled. This includes ensuring there are clear objectives, as well as the psychological safety of trying new things.
