Design Portfolio Presentation Workshop

Lots of experienced product designers fail to land job opportunities and this is not because they’re not great designers, it’s sometimes because they can’t tell their story. Your presence is not required when a first impression is being made around your work, the way your work is presented and the impression it makes on the reviewer of your portfolio will make the difference whether you will get to proceed to the next round or not. This event is aimed at teaching you how to tell your story the right way with your portfolio.
