Update, 2 November: UXDD was a fantastic day. I’ve posted my talk material: Sticky note overload! My talk from UX Design Day
One of the hardest things about getting to present at conferences and events is keeping my damn mouth shut about it until the organisers have announced the line-up. So, after a week or two of keeping my trap shut: I’M COMING TO DUNEDIN FOR UX DESIGN DAY!
Dunedin’s a special place, and any excuse to head back down for a visit is always a good thing. I lived there for seven years, it’s where I met my wonderful wife (as well as being her home town), and it’s where I made some of the best friendships of my life. As far as I recall, it was always exactly like this:

UX Design Day is on October 31, and if a “one-day, sleeves-rolled-up, pva-on-your-fingers design conference” sounds like fun to you, registrations are open.
I’ll be talking about a subject I’ve riffed on a few times: the space where content and UX overlap. In particular I’ll look at how organisations can encourage that overlap, and make the most out of it. My talk is called ‘Content + UX = Better business’. At least, it will be once I’ve assembled it.
If you’re after an idea of where I’m starting from, have a look at this post: Content strategy and UX are twins. I wrote it before UX New Zealand last year, and I think it’s truer than ever now.
