Talk: Making the Most of Mentoring  Luke Hay

Slides for Making the Most of Mentoring

Luke Hay

Luke Hay is a senior UX researcher at Clearleft, who’s worked with clients of all shapes and sizes over his 20 year career. Luke has facilitated various forms of user research with people from different backgrounds – from teenagers to pensioners, dress-makers to body builders over the course of a few hundred user research sessions.

As well as getting stuck into research Luke also runs training in UX and analytics. He has spoken at conferences and events on a variety of UX related topics and in 2018 he wrote a book about UX and Analytics, which is actually more exciting than it sounds, apparently.

Luke’s going to be sharing his experiences of mentoring over the years. He has mentored, and managed, several people and was also heavily involved in running the Brighton Internship Programme during his time at Wired Sussex. He’ll be focusing on his experience of the UX Brighton mentoring programme so far, which will include tips for mentors and mentees to help them get the most from their time together.

Facilitated group session

Learn from the speakers

We’ll hear from a few mentors and mentees who will be speaking about their mentorship experience and how you can make the most of your time with your mentor and/or mentee.

Learn from each other

After the talks, we’ll be holding a facilitated group session where you can share your experiences and hear from your peers about how their mentorship relationship is going. This is an opportunity to tell us what you’ve achieved and what challenges have arisen. Or maybe you have a burning question to ask that is mentorship or UX related. This is the place to ask the community and get answers.

Give UX Brighton feedback

Take part in the facilitated group session to give us feedback so we can make the next mentorship program even better.
