"Make it Pretty." When many people think about User Experience, typically the first thing they consider is the visual design.

ATTEND THIS IF–you're interested in relieving some of the pressure from you and others in your organization, and learn how to make your brand intuitive, natural, and have genuine relationships, come check out this session.

Teaching clients, colleagues and staff how to recognize that "blink" moment, and giving them the vocabulary and concepts to evaluate and recreate engagement, interaction design, features and functionality, conversion paths, calls to action, content strategies and brand appropriate coolness factors, across the user experience -- well, that's win x win for them and for you, plus awesome sauce.
Also, it makes work more better.
