Spend time with the speakers and gain knowledge straight from the source. As usual many of the speakers at From Business to Buttons will host workshops the days before the conference. These workshops are very popular each year, so this time we have more workshops than ever! Including two (!) with last year's runaway success: Jake Knapp.

Mike Monteiro: Design Ethics
By choosing to be a designer you are choosing to affect the people who come in contact with your work. Learn how to tell if your work will hurt or help those people and how to measure social impact alongside shareholder value.
Peter Merholz shines a light on the unsung activities of actually running a design team, the organizational and operational challenges and considerations, and what works and what doesn’t.
Is your team making critical product decisions based on evidence or speculation? Just talking to customers isn’t enough. You need to start with shared goals and a clear process in order to end up with useful insights. This workshop will be a great help in doing so.
