Successfully achieving a project's goals requires a careful balance between stakeholders and designers. Having sales skills can be helpful not only for when you need to sell an actual product to users, but also when you want to sell a client on the importance of a feature or a concept. Having worked with dozens of designers, the through-line between the truly great designers and the less successful designers is their ability to sell.
This workshop will use use-cases and hands on activities to teach simple and effective techniques for building confidence, mastering the art of persuasion, responding to feedback of all types in a positive way, attracting positive attention, gaining traction through storytelling, and managing meetings from start to finish. The workshop will be energetic and lively, and the material will be based on teaching practical skills that will be useful for years to come.
