You’re Going To Die And No-One Is Going To Give A Shit
Chris Spalton, Redgate Software
The world is a more interesting place with our ideas out in it, ideas allow us to connect, share our knowledge and further ourselves and our communities.
If you’ve ever thought ‘I wish I could do that, or make this, or talk about that’ but for some reason haven’t taken the plunge, I’ll be sharing some important lessons I’ve learned about embracing the learning process, working out loud, and building strong connections with people as a result of sharing ideas.
Hopefully you’ll take away some snippets to give you the confidence to put your ideas out there, I guarantee the world will be a better place if you do.
Chris is a Product Designer at Redgate Software in Cambridge. After spending years doodling monsters and zombies as a form of escapism to cope with the drudgery of corporate life he identified a way to turn his limited drawing ability into a way to capture and solve business problems, developing this further he’s now a visual thinking enthusiast and evangelist and an active member of the sketching and UX communities. He is always trying to encourage people to embrace sketching in order to help express ideas and solve problems for their audience’s colleagues, clients and customers in an engaging visual format.
Away from his pens and paper Chris can usually be found having his ribcage rattled by gigantic riffs at various underground rock gigs, taking long walks through the Norfolk countryside, or taking photo’s of alleyways in Whitechapel as part of his probably too acute interest in Jack the Ripper.
