The perfect day of doodles, direction and development with Eva-Lotta

We ran our ‘Sketching for Sketchnoting and Visual Thinking‘  workshop this week and it really was a great success. Not only was Eva-Lotta on great form; guiding us through the day with multiple hands on exercises, coaching us through different techniques and styles and helping us to develop our own unique style of sketch-noting. But the calibre of attendees was also outstanding; comprising a mix of UX consultants, project managers, UI teacher and Creative director, everyone got stuck in and laughed their way through the day, fundamentally taking away a lot from the day in terms of sketching ability and when to use sketching in your day to day.

Everyone had different motives for attending the course though the resounding denominator was sketching as a form of communication; Whether it be to  facilitate scrum meetings or in house workshops, to communicate with clients and key stakeholders, for storyboarding and exploring ideas quickly before digitally refining them etc.

Recruiters asking about your current salary… so invasive right? It’s such a personal thing to ask. And who wants to be potentially judged at how good or successful they are by what they earn?! Let alone tell it to someone you don’t even know.

Identifying the key challenges faced by startups when hiring for their development teams.

That’s right, I said hiring. Not getting hired. I know, I know – another ‘click bait’ title for you. But, it’s another serious topic. Far too often I hear of companies struggling to hire because candidates are not making it as far as offer stage before withdrawing from the process, or candidates’ feedback to me […]
