What is a Tent Talk?
That’s a great question, we’d love to tell you.
Tent Talks are Chicago Camps’ signature live podcast sessions, designed to foster engaging discussions. Each session, lasting between 10 to 20 minutes, features a series of five thought-provoking questions with our guest speakers.
This format not only encourages insightful dialogue but also ensures that each session is packed with valuable content that is easily and quickly consumable. Post-event, these talks are polished and published on popular platforms like Apple Podcasts and Spotify, allowing a wider audience to benefit from these enriching conversations.
Why We Do Tent Talks
Our goal with Tent Talks is to continue providing high-quality, accessible content that resonates with and enriches the UX Design community. We believe in the power of sharing knowledge and experiences, and through these talks, we aim to foster a space for learning, inspiration, and connection. These sessions are more than just discussions; they are a platform for idea exchange and community building within and beyond the realms of UX Design.
