I feel comfortable giving internal presentations, but framing my projects for an unfamiliar audience during the job search proved trickier. I'm used to a company culture where presentation decks are posted for asynchronous review, so my slides were text-heavy and information-dense. Jeff's course helped me understand what information should be included in slides, what can be handled in voiceover, and what level of detail different audiences require. I feel much more confident presenting now that I've taken this course.
An amazing resource for designers struggling with or looking to improve their storytelling and communication skills! Full of valuable information, it's brilliantly structured and inspiring. I went through the course in one breath and plan to come back to it again and again. Highly recommended!
Hi Jeff, I loved your course! I felt lost about presenting my ideas after completing UX/UI Bootcamp. When I was looking at other's portfolios they all seemed reminiscent which scared me, because how would I stand out if they all seems like one template everyone follows? After the course not only I have a better idea of how to put things together and present them, but also have more fun while doing it.
This course is packed with useful and clear concepts. Jeff does a great job communicating them and explaining why they work. I would recommend it not only to those looking to find a new job, but to everyone who needs to present information to colleagues, managers and stakeholders in an engaging and proven way.
Excellent mini-course packed with a ton of valuable information. The only slight change I feel suggesting is including in the "Case Study I wish..." resource some example of what relevant insights could be.
All in all, very recommended!
The format of this course was simple, easy to understand, and very manageable. I love that there were specific examples included of what to do and what not to do and included actionable steps to improve portfolios. Jeff is a great speaker and teacher and was really engaging throughout the videos to keep my attention. I was able to watch everything within a day (and WANTED to keep watching) so it was a very valuable resource for me. Thank you!
This course was extremely helpful! I had received feedback at a previous job regarding my storytelling and how it needed to improve, but I hadn't received any specifics on what that meant. This course really helped me reflect and understand what could have been better, and helped me take note of ways to improve. I'm so glad a course like this exists.
This course everything that I needed and more. Jeff does a beautiful job of breaking down storytelling and making it easy to understand. He is humble, knowledgable, and doesn't add fluff to this course! He gives you the real meat of storytelling and how it applies to UX professionals. As someone still fairly new in the UX industry, I can see myself coming back to this resource time and time again for guidance.
Jeff, I want to thank you for creating such an impactful course that’s a game-changer for any product designer!
The storytelling and case study structures, portfolio presentation tips, and resources have equipped me with the skills needed to effectively deliver. My personal favorite is the ‘Portfolio Presentation’ module; An absolute goldmine!
I’d definitely recommend this course to all designers, for the incredible value it delivers. I know I’ll keep coming back to these videos to refresh my storytelling skills every now and then. :)
Designers often need help to tell a compelling story. Well, this storytelling toolkit solves that by providing a simple framework. The best thing about the course is the examples he gives based on real-world experience. Short videos make it easy to follow along. Plus, the resources are helpful. I'm confident that I can apply these techniques to my case studies and presentations. Junior and senior designer's looking to stand out - this is 100% the course for you.
The storytelling kit finally clarified my understanding of storytelling applications in UX design.
Jeff covered the theory of popular storytelling frameworks and explained in detail how the case study can be tailored to these frameworks and what should be highlighted. He brought great examples and shared his story and point of view as a hiring manager, which was particularly helpful.
I have gained a lot of insights for improving my portfolio case studies and fixing red flags that I didn't notice before.
I recommend this kit because it's easily consumed, interesting and valuable to anyone eager to master storytelling.

Thanks Jeff for the valuable content !...
I really enjoyed the frameworks and techniques you taught. I am really now looking into apply on my portfolio and job as well.
However there are some pros and cons of your course -
What I really like -
- To the point, clarity is maintained.
- Focused on teaching how to get a job by applying techniques
What I didn't like -
- Audio was very smooth and low, this led me in difficulty hearing you in noisy environment.
This toolkit/course is truly exceptional. It offers a down-to-earth and serene atmosphere while providing invaluable support for junior UX designers. Jeff's genuine desire for our success is evident, making him one of the best. The comprehensive content feels like personalized 1:1 sessions or live classroom experiences. It helps overcome imposter syndrome and provides great examples, personal stories, and case studies. The additional resources in Figma and Notion are pure gold. As an ADHD person, I appreciate how engaging the course is, keeping me focused throughout. Highly recommended for any junior UX designer seeking success.

This course clarified what exactly “storytelling” means in the different contexts for UX! Jeff answered so many questions here and I feel equipped to transform my case studies and hopefully my job search experience.
Thank you Jeff!!
This course is fantastic, especially for those new to UX. It helped me pinpoint areas in which I needed to improve my storytelling and provided clear guidance on how to do so. I thoroughly enjoyed the engaging content and completed it in one sitting.
Jeff White takes the vague topic of "storytelling" and translates it into clear and actionable steps for any designer to build their influence and progress in their career. I couldn't recommend this enough.
One of the most important skills in UX/UI is storytelling, Jeff's UX Storytelling is a straightforward and practical course that helped me realize how to improve when it comes to communicating and presenting designs to different stakeholders. There are really valuable tips and recommendations to improve your storytelling skills! I Recommend it 100%!
Lots of people talk about the importance of storytelling for UX designers, but Jeff brings clarity to UX designers and shows exactly how to do it, and why it matters.
I love Jeff's approach to storytelling here. He breaks down different scenarios and how to apply different techniques to different problems you may be having with work as a UX designer.
This course is a must!
I highly recommend Jeff's course if you want to excel in the art of storytelling. His no nonsense approach sets him apart by weaving a narrative that's engaging and compelling. He provides real tools designers can leverage.
Jeff's expertise in storytelling and presentation development has not only helped me become a better communicator and designer for my clients, it has also given me the tools to pass it forward in growing and mentoring the designers on my team.

"...Jeffs insights on storytelling and creating impactful case studies for portfolio are actionable and user-friendly. Jeff's approach to UX is unique, yet realistic. I am excited to implement Jeffs recommendations to my case studies..."
Jeff has excellent storytelling skills; he makes even the most complex problems easily digestible for his audience. No matter your professional level, I'm sure you can learn much from his course and won't regret the time you invest in it.
Jeff cuts through noise while emphasizing what's essential—and uses storytelling to rally teams around great design.
This skill has been instrumental in preventing confusion, delays, and derailments, ultimately leading to an elegant end product. Even at 10x the price this course would have a massive ROI.
