UX design training

I am an experienced instructor in UX design, having taught workshops and courses with General Assembly for four years. I've also carried out multi-day training for large companies and workshops for startups.

I now privately teach three workshops, for which you can hire me to train your team. They are outlined in more detail below, where you can enquire about running one.

I aim to allow the students to help shape the exact direction of each class and can often be flexible with the format.

I could rattle on with my own words about how I teach but it's probably more useful if I let some of the comments I've received from my workshops do the talking...
