Though the Enterprise UX conference is only in its second year, we already have a tradition we’re proud of: our enterprise UX storytelling session. Dan Willis—who is really just amazing at choosing and preparing speakers—has lined up eight enterprise UX people to present their ideas, stories, and rants for five minutes apiece in rapid succession.
Last year’s enterprise UX stories truly electrified the crowd. Check out the videos, then behold our 2016 storytellers:
