Outlaw UX: What Willie Nelson Can Teach You About User Experience | 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

He has been described as "a carved-in-granite, Samurai poet, warrior gypsy, guitar-pickin’ wild man with a heart as big as Texas and the greatest sense of humor in the West”. His statue in downtown Austin is actually made out of bronze but the rest is pretty accurate.

Willie Nelson will tell you, “I’m just an old cowboy poet, a song singer on the road of life”. At age 81, he's spent almost his entire life writing songs, telling stories, connecting with and delighting audiences around the world.

We can all learn a lot from Willie, especially those of us working in user experience. In this session you'll learn to approach UX like this legendary recording artist, activist, author, and actor. Willie's wisdom includes: fitting in and standing out, connecting with your audience (or users), getting past creative blocks, persevering in difficult business arrangements, finding your tribe, overcoming financial setbacks, and most importantly doing work you love -- at every stage in life.

Tuesday's Austin Startup Week lineup is supported by AT&T U-verse.
