Event description: 

By taking the time to examine critique and how it fits into the design process and both an activity and an aspect of any communication we can focus our conversations and improve our ability to collaborate. In this presentation we'll examine the language, rules and strategies for improving the conversations with teammates and provide attendees with takeaways that can immediately be put to work to create a useful, collaborative environment for discussing designs.
