Communication is a vital part of each UX designer’s role. However, sometimes we can find ourselves in situations where we lack the confidence to speak our opinions or offer feedback even if we think our input could offer more value for a product. Andy and Patrick had a speak up session with product designer, Allison Zubal to find out why speaking up is important and how designers can get better at sharing their thoughts with others.



  • How to can gain the confidence to speak up.

  • How senior designers and executives can create a better environment that encourages more to speak up.

  • How to get better at offering feedback that has value.
