UXSG Meetup #41 was held on Wednesday, 28 Feb 2018 from 7–10PM at Zalora Regional HQ, 10 Hoe Chiang Road #18-01 Keppel Towers Singapore 089315.
We are starting off this year’s UXSG meetup with Lean Coffee format with a smaller, experienced group of practitioners to deepen our learning, as we received positive feedback that a smaller group size would facilitate learning a lot more better. Special thanks to Siân Ng, UX Researcher from Zalora team to open up their beautiful office at Keppel Towers to host the event for this intimate group.
We have used this meetup to discuss and design the future of UXSG community events, understanding what it meant for each and everyone on the existence (or non-existence) of the community and the monthly meetup events that comes with it.
We have reached a consensus that maintaining the meetup with a small group of not more than 40 pax in lean coffee session will signify a new start on how we will experiment new ways of peer-to-peer learning through a central theme: Forging meaningful relationships among attendees.
After having an additional working session with some of the community folks, we will be tweaking our approach and format for future meetup events as such:
- Only participants who have attended the previous two meetup events will be part of the invited list for the next meetup.
- The invited participants are allow to invite ONE (1) additional person of their own wish to attend this meetup (based on trust that they will extend the invite to the right people only).
- We are targeting the total attendee size not to exceed 40 pax to keep it small and condusive for deeper discussion.
Note: If you happen to stumble upon this article and wish to attend future UXSG meetups but do not know anyone active in the group yet, find a way – ask around – then get an invitation into this small, intimate group for deep conversations.
