Senior Product Designer
"The VUI course was exceptional. It covered everything we’d hoped to learn from high-level theory to a detailed understanding of human linguistics and building our own voice skills. The instructors were obviously very knowledgeable of the voice space and really hands on."

"I expected to get an insight into the workflow in conversational design. But I have got so much more out of the course. They gave me so many technical tools in my hands that I will need some time to go through all the videos and practice a bit more!"
