UX Skills Only Get You So Far:


UX skills are in increasingly high demand by employers. Getting a new job or thinking about advancing your career in your current job might seem like it is a matter of good skills, experience and solid knowledge of the field. But that only gets you part of the way there. Do you have what it takes to advance your career?

The NYC UXPA and IxDA NYC are excited to welcome DC-based UX Consultant and President of UXPA International Cory Lebson will share his knowledge of the UX world to help you make decisions about how to move beyond your comfort zone and increase your career potential. 

The first portion of the evening will be spent discussing what you should be doing, while the second portion will start you off getting out there and networking, with a structured UX speed networking event.

This event is suitable for anyone looking to break into the UX field, as well as UX practitioners looking to improve their professional presence.


Cory has been a user experience consultant for 20 years. He established Lebsontech LLC in 1997, and in 2008, he transformed this side-business into a full-time occupation. 

Cory also greatly enjoys teaching topics related to user experience and conducts regular talks and workshops. He has been featured on the radio and has published several recent articles. 

Cory has an MBA in marketing and technology management, as well as an MA in sociology and a BS in psychology. He is the current president of the User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA) International and is the former President of the Washington DC chapter of UXPA.

Deadlines, Transfers, & Policies

All registration activities are handled by our volunteers. Please be advised that on the day of the event, we'll do our best to accommodate late requests, but our primary focus will be on day-of-event logistics.

Regular registration closes the day before the event or when we reach capacity, whichever happens first.

We provide attendee lists to security staff and print name tags on around noon the day of the event, therefore refund requests can only be taken until the day before the event (send refund requests to RSVP@nycupa.org). We regretfully cannot offer refunds to people who cancel on the day of the event. You have until 11AM the day of the event to transfer your ticket to someone else by sending the name of your transferee to RSVP@nycupa.org. We will do our best to accommodate, but we can't guarantee that all transfer requests will be honored. 

Seating Capacity & Wait Lists

Seating capacity changes with every venue. If an event sells out beforehand, a wait list may be set up and managed by us on a discretionary basis. Signing up on the wait list does not guarantee a seat; we'll do our best to keep wait-listers informed about the status of available seating.

Registration for this event is online. If you choose to come to the event on a walk-in basis, please bring exact change and be advised that a seat is not guaranteed.


This event may be video-recorded. NYC UXPA reserves the right to use any video footage and/or photography obtained during our events and networking activities on our website or any other community-sharing website, including but not restricted to Facebook, LinkedIn, Vimeo, YouTube, and Flickr in order to promote the visibility of our organization.

On rare occasions a presenter may need to cancel at the last minute. This can happen due to air travel delays, client emergencies, or other factors beyond our control. NYC UXPA will make every effort to secure a backup speaker if this occurs. If a backup speaker can't be found, NYC UXPA will issue a refund.
