This is a great advice!
Even if you’re not following event curation sites, you have certainly come across good talks. Here’s my strategy to add more events to my calendar.
When I find an interesting talk or speaker profile, I check out her/his website or speaking portfolio to find what other events she/he’s speaking at. There’s a good chance that she/he is speaking at other conferences which also curate interesting talks.
By using this strategy, you will probably end up with more events in your calendar than you can possibly go to.
She also shared her curated list of events in UX, design & tech for 2018. We’ve found these events in 2019!
