On June 19,we welcome two speakers covering topics guaranteed to warm up even a wet, rainy, Seattle summer evening. First up, Karen Semyan from Moz will present Personas at Moz: What, Why, and How In this session, Karen will share the journey of building Moz personas using lean principles, and show examples of how they&#39;re being used now and in the future to understand customers, community, and opportunities in the marketplace. Then Jon White, also from Moz, will lead the group in his well-known Usability Testing LIVE workshop. This interactive session will show you how the lack of usability testing teams or labs shouldn&#39;t stop you from usability testing. All you need to do usability testing is the simple combination of you, your user and a product. About Karen: Karen is director of product planning and strategy at Moz. She and her teammates focus on market and competitive research, user research and testing, data analysis, personas, and the framework for companywide business strategy and planning. Her projects include personas, pricing, and cross-team planning and strategy. Before Moz, she worked in product roles at Microsoft and in the non-profit and startup worlds About Jon: Jon is a product manager at Moz where he builds marketing analytics software.  Previously he managed products at WDS (acquired by Xerox) after moving into product management from engineering.  He spent a couple of years on the board of PMC and helps organize ProductCamp Seattle.
