Upcoming Events

Optimizing UX for Agile - and Vice Versa: A Panel Discussion

Date: Thursday, April 20, 2017, 7:00PM

Time: Networking starts at 6:45pm, Presentation starts at 7pm

Location: Bahen Building, 40 St. George Street,  Room 1180

Cost: Free. RSVP Required. Come and see what ToRCHI is all about, and if you like these presentations, join ToRCHI for $20/year membership.

TOPIC & PRESENTERS: How do UX specialists adapt and optimize UX practices for an Agile environment — and how do they try to tweak Agile practices to suit UX? To address these questions, ToRCHI has assembled a panel with a track record of sharing best practices on UX or Agile topics. They represent a good cross section in terms of organizations they’ve worked for, disciplinary backgrounds, and even their views on whether Agile has been a good thing for UX. So expect a lively discussion!

Our panelists are:

Diane McKerlie: Design | Strategy Inc - President
Mike Costanzo: Rangle.io - Head of UX & Product Design
Paul McInerney: IBM - Senior UX Researcher & Designer
Tom Bellman: S&P Global Market Intelligence - Director, UX Research & Design
Vadim Tslaf: Canada Post - Director, Design & User Experience

This event is more than a panel — you’ll also participate in small group discussion. So bring your stories and questions to share too.

NETWORKINGAfter the event, we'll continue the conversation at O'Grady's171 College St.
