See below for more details.
“How to develop for the role you want” panel discussion
This panel of experienced UX professionals will talk about: what skills are essential, which skills are desirable, the differing levels of soft and hard skills required. What steps they’ve taken to improve their skills, and things they look for in others.
This event is FREE to attend!
We ask for a £10 deposit that is fully refunded to all event attendees. This is necessary to limit the amount of people who book tickets and don’t attend. Otherwise we end up wasting a lot of food and drink. If you have booked a ticket and can no longer attend, providing you cancel the ticket 48 hours before the event you will be refunded in full.

30mins plus Q&A time
Lauren is UK Partnerships Lead for General Assembly, helping to connect GA graduates to potential employers and allowing her to concentrate on 3 of her passions: people, tech and education.
She moved to London in 2015 having spent nearly three years in Sydney working in recruitment and connecting creatives and coders to job opportunities in Sydney’s tech scene. During her time down under, she became passionate about making the world a better place through sustainability and worked for Republic of Everyone, an agency which focuses on social good campaigns and green initiatives.
When she’s not on campus she spends most of her time exploring London, tasting new types of gin and attempting to start her own podcast series “Better Date Than Never.”
