What our past attendees say

Zoe Murray – UX Researcher
“Mike was instrumental to helping me change careers into UX properly. I was still in a transition phase and he offered to mentor me after I had completed the General Assembly UX course. I worked with the Mike and the Expiriti team on a live client project with a start-up. Mike’s incredible mentorship skills helped to take what I knew from my previous career and apply this to UX Research. I will always be grateful for Expiriti providing me with my first opportunity to gain practical experience in UX and giving me the confidence and a platform that I needed.”
