Creating a Human-Centered Culture

  • Rev1 Ventures 1275 Kinnear Road Columbus, OH, 43212 United States (map)

Tech Elevator is excited to partner with the Columbus Web Group to host this upcoming Meetup.


Most of us have learned the hard way that technical projects don’t fail for technical reasons.

Politics, egos, misunderstandings... working with people is a messy business.

And yet, every experience we create alongside our human clients is intended to make life a little better for a human user.

So how do we create an environment where our people can work alongside other people to create exceptional experiences for the people: our users?

In this presentation Ben will share a framework for valuable collaboration, discuss the criticality of diversity, and lay out three levels of holistic development for the people you work with—all leading to better retention, better work, and happier teammates and clients.


President of Sparkbox and founder of the Build Right workshop series, Ben shares his ideas about the web on the Sparkbox Foundry and other leading industry blogs. He’s incredibly grateful for the team at Sparkbox as they pioneer new responsive web design techniques and he continues to push for great user experiences outside the context of specific devices. You can find him speaking around the worldrambling on Twittertinkering with his personal site, or splitting wood in his backyard for next winter.
