How do you squeeze creativity from your customers who may be similar to and not unlike stuffy bankers in suits from a century old industry? In this interactive UX design workshop, you’ll learn strategies to collaborate with customers to bring out the best ideas, leveraging their knowledge and experience to create new and exciting ways of doing business. This session will build on the storytelling process with a hands on run through of how to conduct a design workshop with customers.

Be sure to attend nCino’s  “Influence of Design” session prior to this one! “Influence of Design” will be a good overview of how design is similar to telling a story while going through design thinking and problem solving in the overall process.

Brett Dooies
Brett Dooies leads a team of product managers helping to transform the consumer banking landscape by developing intuitive and efficient software for bankers and customers alike. As a product manager, Brett’s job involves understanding the challenges the financial services industry is facing, working with customers, colleagues, and other stakeholders to develop creative and delightful solutions to those problems, and collaborating with development teams to deliver functionality that solves those problems. If he was forced to describe his function in one word, that word would be empathy. But no one is forcing him to do that, he can use as many words as he likes. Find out more about how product managers help solve real world problems in this session.
