How do you communicate with stakeholders? What about
developers/implementers? What do you say, and what do you not say? How
do you create buy-in and get others to share your vision and get excited
about it?

AustinUX and Austin UPA are hosting a panel discussion on collaboration
& communication techniques that work. Come and hear our panelists share
their experiences, and come and share your own.

Tuesday, October 6th, 6:30 - 8:30, at Convio HQ in the Domain. This
is a free event, but space is limited. Please RSVP online:


6:30 - 7:00: Arrival and networking
