Publisher's Summary

Talking to people about your designs might seem like a basic skill, but it can be difficult to do well. In many cases, how you communicate with stakeholders, clients, and other non-designers may be more important than the designs themselves. Because if you can't get their support, your work will never see the light of day - no matter how good it is.

This practical guide focuses on principles, tactics, and actionable methods for presenting your designs. Whether you design apps, websites, or products, you'll learn how to get support from people who have influence over the project with the goal of creating the best user experience. 

Walk through the process of preparing and presenting your designs.

Understand stakeholder perspectives and learn how to empathize with them.

Cultivate both implicit and explicit listening skills.

Learn tactics and strategies for expressing the most effective response to feedback.

Create the right documentation for your decisions to avoid repeated conversations.

Discover why the way you follow through is just as important as the meeting itself.

A must for any UX Designer!

I've already left a review on Amazon (I purchased the paperback prior to purchasing the audiobook), but for the audiophiles out there, I just wanted to say that this book is a true goldmine of information. First of all, kudos to the narrator, Ric Chetter. He navigates the material with a natural grace--it was as though the author, himself, was reading it to me. And regarding the material, if you've ever struggled with articulating your ideas in a meeting or defending your design decisions, then this book is most definitely for you. After completing the paperback, I decided to buy the audiobook, as well, and I listen to it regularly while I work. I feel as though I latch onto something new each time, and my confidence in my job has increased measurably as a result. My coworkers are more attentive to my comments and more receptive to my ideas, all because I've learned not only how to better communicate them, but also how to better read my team members. A must-have book, indeed.
