This months talk will be The UX designer is dead…Long live UX! with Chris Compston, Sky Online Services.

Can you actually design a user’s experience? There is a common misunderstanding both inside the industry and externally about the role of a so called “UX designer”. Should this role exist? I plan to raise some tough questions about our existence, try to unravel what is expected of us and what the future may hold.
