Given it was UserTesting's inaugural summit, I didn't know what to expect. Generally I tend to find inaugural conferences to be a hit or miss because it's everyone's first time gathering for that event, but THiS19 definitely exceeded my expectations!
“It was fun connecting with other folks using UserTesting daily and hearing how they’re using it. Was great for idea generation and conversation starters amongst my team on more ways we can use UserTesting in our regular workstreams.”
“The breakout session on storytelling was amazing! I can't say enough good things about the presenters on their content.”
