Untapped UX: nurturing new talent with fresh ideas
The upcoming Untapped UX event, billed as 'An event where never heard before voices speak about UX', is a newcomer to London's web conference domain. Getting first time speakers to present their ideas with confidence is not easy; to help foster new talent, the event's organisers have recruited experienced speakers as mentors and Sandi Wassmer will be one of them.
When approached by the inimitable Sophie Freiermuth, more commonly known as @wickedgeekie, Sandi agreed without hesitation, remembering how terrifying it was when she began public speaking. Sandi said, "I was utterly rubbish when I first ascended the podium. I sought a mentor to guide me through the trials and tribulations of presenting in front of a room of strangers, but I found no takers, so I'm delighted to be able to share what I've learned along the way."
