How to be a good mentor: The coaching conversation
Giles Colborne, CEO, cxpartners

At its best, coaching helps people to focus their effort to achieve their goals - struggling less, showing resilience in the face of difficulties, and having courage to do what’s difficult. Getting there requires a structured approach, and lots of listening. I’ll share the conversational framework I use to help people achieve that focus.

giles-keynoteGiles Colborne began his career in HCI in the early 1990s and cofounded cxpartners in 2004. Since then it has grown to become one of the world’s leading independent experience design consultancies working on next-generation experience design, and generating hundreds of millions of dollars of revenue for companies such as Marriott, eBay, and AXA. His book Simple and Usable has sold tens of thousands of copies in Europe and North America and has been translated into Chinese and Korean. Giles is a former president of the UPA, former co-chair of IA Summit, and a UX Awards judge. He has worked with the British Standards Institute in developing standards for web accessibility.


kateWe’ll take you through the process of putting together a CV and Portfolio from scratch. Starting with defining your goals then helping you work towards creating something that reflects your individual experience and is tailored towards the industries or types of businesses you’d like to work for. This session is suitable for people who are new to UX, whether you’ve just finished study or are moving into UX from another discipline as well as current UX practitioners who are looking to overhaul their current CV’s and Portfolios. You’ll be able to make it through the session with pens and paper but we advise bringing along your laptop and any work you’ve already done.

This is an interactive, hands on workshop that will provide you with individual reflection on your career progression, discuss in an open setting what you think employers want to see, contextualize  the structure of an a successful CV and evaluate your own CV.

The UK Chapter of the User Experience Professionals’ Association (UXPA) is a not-for-profit organisation run exclusively by volunteers. We are affiliated with the International UXPA.


We bring together UK professionals who share a vision of creating compelling technology that meets users’ needs, desires and abilities. These professionals come from a broad family of disciplines such as user-centred design, research, and human factors.


Through our events and other work, we:


- Provide UX practitioners with opportunities for learning and professional growth
- Champion the benefits of user-centred design techniques and approaches


Our Chapter is governed by some policies and bylaws of UXPA International, but has enough freedom to define many of its processes and policies. All of our bylaws are described in our Constitution, which was ratified in July 2013.


As a volunteer organisation, we do our best to support the community. Participation from, and collaboration with, the community is crucial.
