Welcome to Leaders of Awesomeness

A lively community of UX leaders, designers, researchers, and writers from all over the world.

Hosted by Center Centre – UIE's Jared Spool and Dr. Leslie Jensen-Inman.

What is Leaders of Awesomeness?

You’re about to join a community of more than 30,000 UX design, research, and content leaders. Our community is the place where UX leaders come to share, reflect, and grow.

Dr. Leslie Jensen-Inman, Jared Spool, and the team at Center Centre – UIE launched this new online community for UX leaders to gather and share their experience and wisdom. We’d love for you to join too.

In addition to thoughtful community discussion around all matters of UX leadership topics, we host free weekly live discussions, called Talk UX Strategy with Jared Spool.

To be part of the discussion, just join the community. Once you’re in, you’ll find all the event details, including how to participate in the topics. (Can’t make those times, no worries. We post the recordings of every session in the community.)

All discussions are at 2pm ET (18.00 GMT). You can subscribe to the Leaders of Awesomeness calendar and these, and any new discussions, will automatically be added to your calendar.

Upcoming Talk UX Strategy discussions:

  • What to Measure for UX: The User’s Behavior or their Attitudes?
    Monday, October 25
  • Why Your Analytics Tools Are Wrong For UX Metrics
    Monday, November 1 

Both the community and the Talk UX Strategy sessions are free.
