About the session

This workshop will demonstrate the transformative power of storyboards as a UX research tool. The visual impact of storyboards command attention from the audience, and because they resonate on a human level, they can even help change perspectives.

By vividly bringing to life the thoughts and emotions of users in story form, different areas of the brain are activated. As a result, stories woven into your presentations do more than inform; they connect and build trust, which make your findings more memorable and influential.

Join us for this interactive session to enhance your storytelling skills and learn how to elevate your UX research into memorable stories that not only inform decision making, but also drive change.

Participant takeaways:

  • Understand and be able to explain what a storyboard is as a UX research method and be able to introduce it into their own organisation
  • Use the story arc technique to structure compelling stories and be confident in how to pull out a narrative from UX research.
  • Understand how to create the visual elements of a storyboard by either utilising physical materials or through Microsoft PowerPoint to be able to present digitally
  • Take away a practical example of a completed storyboard which can be used as a reference for future storyboarding
