Speaking & Facilitation
Adrian Howard is available for paid facilitation & speaking events at your organisation — bringing his 25+ years of experience to internal professional development events and company retreats.
Adrian has been presenting at international events for more than ten years. He talks on the overlap of Agile, UX, and Product — with a focus on outcomes, strategy, failure, and cross-functional teamwork. His talks are actionable — giving attendees ideas and practices they can takeaway immediately and experiment with.
We do free talks for non-profit community events and organisations supporting non-represented groups in design, product, and development.
During 2020 we are only accepting virtual appearances.

How to Write OKRs That Don’t Suck
Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) are awesome! So why do they work so badly for some companies? Why do they often end up as another stick to beat teams with?
I played @adrianh's "How to Talk to Earthlings" at a brownbag this week for my team. Inspired great conversations!
Experimenting with Experimental Ethics
Adrian examines different approaches to experimental ethics and explains how a more team- and values-oriented approach can make product experiments safer and more effective.
How can you get everyone in the team to understand your customers — especially if you’re not 100% certain yourself? Persona help, but traditional persona development sometimes doesn’t work well in agile contexts.
Organisational culture vs. A/B testing strategies: @adrianh dropping knowledge like Galileo dropped the orange.
Going to try using lean persona soon thanks to @adrianh. Got some 'set-and-forget persona' going mouldy in the office
Loved your session so much, can't wait to go back to work and tell everyone about it. Really practical session
I like @adrianh doesn’t use too much jargon or pre-formated tables to share knowledge. We learn in a #lean way
Thanks, @adrianh for the great talk on 'Intersection of UX, Product and Agile', it was very well received by over 50 attendees. Great to have you on board.
