Speaking

Accessible Design is Vital

When we design for what are traditionally seen as “edge cases” in our audience, we create a product or presentation that is better for everyone.  Stephy is always trying to sneak in golden nuggets about designing accessibly in the digital space wherever she goes. 

She uses WCAG 2.x standards for AA compliance as the skeleton of what she teaches–but she dresses up those standards in a fun and engaging manner to help others get excited about designing accessibly, as well.

 

Need a design talk?

Stephy gives workshops and breakout sessions on designing effective presentations, designing accessibly, and other general design topics concentrating on the experience of the end-user or audience. Want to know her credentials? Check out her LinkedIn page.

Career Transitioning

    Keynote Speaking

    Stephy wants to help your audience feel unstuck by making them the protagonist in their very own video game and by helping them save the princess in their career quest (themselves). Because they CAN do it. They DO have what it takes. In fact, people who transition their career or specialty have an even greater ability to innovate than those who do the same thing their whole lives. They just need a little push to truly believe it.

      Stephy’s unique background – a blend of fascinating disciplines – combined with her genuine spark and enthusiasm for creativity makes her a fabulous storyteller with a strong and relatable message. I found myself reflecting on my own career journey and what I bring to the table from that, and feeling more confident about my unique set of skills and experiences. It’s a good feeling! Stephy clearly takes pleasure in speaking and her joy is utterly contagious.

      Being in the middle of a mid-life career transition, I heard Stephy Hogan’s speech ‘Underdog Career Quest’ and it really spoke to me! In a very entertaining and honest way, Stephy captures the uncertainty we can easily feel when we leave the known behind (for whatever reason) and then shows us all what we actually do take with us as we move into something new. Stephy is inspiring and thought provoking.

      The most elegant and accessible presenter so far is Stephy “Snow White” Hogan. Loving to see how the PowerPoint live captions work. I wish I could speak as clearly and nicely paced as Stephy.

      I must be selecting all the best presentations–or you all just have selected the best of the best… Stephy was personable and fun and gave great details that will be useful as I seek to create accessible presentations for the first time for my students. Thanks again!

      Stephy is a gem. Incredibly responsive and transparent with the perfect mix of guidance, advice and just make it happen. She is just as excited about your project as you are which means she is not just taking orders or executing, but genuinely working with you to produce the best result.
