A presentation and discussion led by John Whalen, Director, User Experience & Design at e.magination:
Humans are far from perfectly logical. There have been a slew of new books out there linking what Psychologists have known for years with our everyday behavior. However, we’re only just beginning to use some of these principles effectively online. Find out what the principles are, see pragmatic examples of what we’re talking about and how you might be able to put them to work for you. Bring in your site or web address and we can discuss it in context.
