The Leeds Digital Festival is returning this year: an open, collaborative celebration of digital culture in all its forms held across the city.
In association with Leeds Building Society local digital design agency Lion+Mason is hosting an informal in-person event to hear from leading specialists discussing some of the key digital challenges facing businesses - including how AI holds immense potential for enhancing product capabilities and how it can directly impact user experience.
In this episode I chat with the speakers about what they will be covering in their talks and what relevant, practical tips they hope attendees can take away to use in their own organisations.
The speakers are:
Joe Deadman Senior Creative UX Designer at Leeds Building Society
