Attendees will have the opportunity to create their own takeaways by asking our members questions, but we'll also be prepared to cover some high-value topics. These'll include common design pitfalls we're seeing in our research, user-centric design trends and their potential impacts, the roles & responsibilities across research & UX, and the growing need to broaden our potential audience
