Presenting design like your life depends on it: The Melbourne Edition featuring Mike Monteiro.

Can’t fly to San Francisco for one of Mule Design’s highly sought-after workshops? Well we’re bringing one to you, Melbourne.

Our dear friends at Mule Design Studio in San Francisco have been doing some brilliant and engaging work in the past few years — above and beyond the excellent work they do for their clients.

Starting with Mike Monteiro’s “Fuck You, Pay Me” talk at Creative Mornings, through stirring and career-shifting books and talks by both Erika Hall and Mike Monteiro, they’ve been sounding a clarion that says “we can do this much better”. And people have been listening.


Mike Monteiro of Mule Design, who will be facilitating a workshop on presentation skills at Floate on 28 January 2016.

But nobody from Mule had ever come to Melbourne, despite our constant encouragement. But we at Floate kept persisting (hassling, really)and now we are extremely pleased be hosting a Mule workshop by Mike Monteiro “Presenting design like your life depends on it” on January 28.

The all-day session is designed the way you like it – limited attendee numbers and lots of individual attention. Every attendee will have the opportunity to present a piece of work for five minutes, and to get the benefit of Mike’s years of experience.

During this workshop we’ll cover effective presentation techniques including: how to take charge of a room, how to turn your research and data into a good story, how to map your work to the objectives of your business or client, how to ask for the right kind of feedback, and more importantly, how to avoid getting feedback you don’t really need!

It’s a rare opportunity to learn from one of the industry’s more polemic designers and we hope you can join us. Remember that our capacity is limited to 20 people per session, so tickets will sell fast.

Mike Monteiro is also speaking at Melbourne’s Above All Human conference on January 29. Above All Human promises to be a magnificent day, and features and stunning array of speakers. Get along!
