Event Details

UX Sheffield logo

A bimonthly event in Sheffield where we invite speakers from around the country to come and talk about their experiences in research and design projects. 


Beware! The Account Manager is talking about UX again...

Mistakes I often made when selling design and UX; and why it helps to understand how this made clients feel. 

Simon kicks off the evening with an honest retelling of daft things he's said and done when selling UX over the years. Using understanding from neuroscience and coaching, Amanda will then explain how this made clients feel; and how those feelings shaped their reactions.

Amanda and Simon Cookson lend a hand to ambitious digital and creative businesses. They work with founders, leaders and makers to unlock value within themselves, their people and their partnerships.

Since both gaining an MA in Management in the creative sector from The University of Sheffield's Business School in the mid 90s, both Amanda and Simon have worked in and around the sector for over 20 years. Simon's experience centres around sales, marketing and client services, whilst Amanda has built her skills in the field of people management, change and leadership.

When it comes to creating value we reckon people and relationships make all the difference.
