53: How to Design Non-Sh**t Conferences with ANDY BUDD

Jonathan interviews Andy Budd, co-founder of Clearleft and the man behind popular design conferences like UX London and Leading Design. Jonathan asks lots of questions and but doesn’t even get close to asking everything he wants to ask. Some of the topics Jonathan and Andy touch on:

How Andy is pathological! It’s true! 👻

What are conferences for? Spoiler: it’s not education! 🤔

How to connect with people at conferences? 🤚🏻
