Event description

Description

Do you love product design? Are you a product designer? Our next Terminal Tech Talk features Matt Rae who will walk us through how design teams can leverage other teams to change design culture. He will cover how designers should collaborate, evangelize and equip teams internally. He also covers how to listen to your teams to create great products and a strong design culture. Matt is a design ambassador, outdoor enthusiast and founder.


Matt Rae is also a product designer at Zenreach. Zenreach is a technology company based in San Francisco, California. Zenreach also has offices in Scottsdale, Arizona as well as Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. Zenreach produces a SaaS marketing platform used by businesses with physical locations. They are presently hiring across all three offices.


We will explore a number of topics including:


1\ Collaboration: how design teams are most effective when they can collaborate across teams.


2\ Evangelism: showing the success of design initiatives and the success teams have had.


3\ Equipping: how to equip other teams with the tools to implement and engage with design.


4\ Listening: since teams always have feedback on product, design teams need to listen and demonstrate they’re listening.
