The Power of Play - Nancy Beers

Game, Strike aaaand Match!!
When you incorporate play into the UX game it will astonish you with how the force is with you:) No matter how complex the problem, how serious the challenge is, or traditional your organization or team is! The power of play moves people and organizations forward 🤸🏽!

International speaker about play in business and gamification Nancy Beers will move us on this topic - expect the unexpected!

When you work in design, you work in politics - Maike Klip

'You might not like it. Or you might not know it. But you do.' A thought-provoking statement from Maike Klip, UX strategist and design researcher at the government. 
We strive for a compassionate digital government and good products and services, but what does this mean, and how do we get there? What is our role and responsibility as designers? Do we dare to look beyond ourselves, look uncomfortable in the eyes, and act on that?

At Maike Klip her interactive session we'll explore this topic together.
Learn more about Maike Klip on her (Dutch) blog KlipKlaar.

How a talking mirror boosts your self-esteem - Nadine van den Berg

Get inspired by the story about Mina, the smart mirror that gives daily short assignments in the context of self-esteem.
Initially designed for unemployed people over 50: people with a wealth of experience, talent and potential, who just couldn’t find a job. In recent years, partly due to Covid, it has become clear that it is not only the over-50s who are struggling with this. The lack of self-confidence in our society is something that causes problems in several places. Will Mina offer a solution to this problem?! 

Find out in this inspiring talk by Nadine van den Berg, interaction designer and driver of the tenth edition of Driving Dutch Design.
