Charged Chat with Scott Savarie
If you want to get really good at UI/UX work learn how to prototype. Better yet, learn how to program.
Charged Chat with Davis Neable
Taking the time to pause and reflect will be more impactful as rough patches can be a sign that the universe is trying to tell us something.
Charged Chat with Suchita Bali
Stay true to ourselves and achieve what we set our minds to do. Plans do work out. It may take longer than anticipated, but things work out, and the key is not to give up.
Charged Chat with Theresa Stewart
If you’re looking to carve out your niche in design you can do it if you’re motivated. I felt so free once I stopped following other people’s paths and narratives for me and just ruthlessly went after the projects I wanted.
Charged Chat with Mike Daoust

Charged Chat with Deborah Sauve
I believe that a modern paradox is that it’s simpler to create complex interfaces because it’s so complex to simplify them. When I’m not working on a computer, I love the outdoors and have an affinity towards all frozen sports (skating, skiing, snowshoeing), and hanging with my canine bestie.

Speaking at Charged was absolutely one of the highlights of my year. As a speaker, I truly felt appreciated and supported; I still can’t believe that such a professionally-done event is put on by such a small (but mighty!) team.
