Hi Guys, just on train back from meeting today.
Went very well, good some great advice on some core skills to focus on, just to strengthen the top of the 'T' shape in my skill set. I got him to look over some work I've already done and he gave me good tips on what each item needs to be super presentable as a story within my portfolio.
He also was well up to date with the state of the industry here, and how businesses are slowly coming around to the concept of Usability.
All in all very well worth while, we will certainly stay in touch, I've offered my self to assist on any UX project in exchange for the experience. And I'll keep a lookout for opportunities I can pass his way.
