2019 UXAu MegaMeetup – Aug 27

In order to share some of the excellent presenters coming to Sydney for UXAustralia, Six Sydney Meetups are teaming up to bring a little taste of some of the stellar people speaking at the conference to some of you who might not be able to make it. Two nights before UXAu kicks off, we’ll be hosting up to 6 of the presenters to give a lightning talk, then break off into groups so people can Q&A and discuss more specifically with each of them.

We’ve not done this before so fingers crossed it will all work out!
