Transcript: Ask the UXperts: Make Meaningful Work with Dan Szuc

Make Meaningful Work – From Sleepwalking to Sparkle isn’t your average Ask the UXperts kind of title, but then nothing is ever particularly normal when it comes to Dan Szuc. He grabs life with both hands, gives it a shake, and hands it back all shiny and new. It’s an inspiring thing to be watch.

Dan didn’t let us down today.

Rather than our usual Q&A format, he asked us the questions and they weren’t easy ones.

The session was designed to get us thinking about the changes that we can make in our own work environments (and within our own selves) to ensure that we are getting (and giving) the most value possible.

Dan wrapped up with an impressive reading list, which I’ve curated here for your learning pleasure.
