The first part of Being an Evil Mastermind was presented at EuroIA Summit 2013 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Back then it was a reckoning of my experience work as Information Architect or UX Consultant in various enterprise projects. I had taken a rocky learning path till then, to finally understand that internal politics always win the argument.
Part 2 was humbly offered at EuroIA 2018 in Dublin, Ireland. Between the first and the second part, I started to lead a team and usually took senior or managing positions in projects. I had become part of the corporate culture, not without a full set of weaponry, that I shared with the audience.
So, if you experience the same pain and want to change something about it: Don't hesitate to contact me. I know how to deal with hostile work environments.
Part 2 - for designers and IAs in managing positions
Part 1 - for designers and IAs in operative positions
These are satirical presentations. Don't apply those advices! Or at least, don't hold me responsible when you're suddenly appointed to be CEO.
