“Experience Design:” A New Mindset for Understanding Your Customers

Industrious Madison | 25 West Main Street Madison, WI 53703

Tue, May 8, 2018 | 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM CDT

Want to provide a unique customer experience? Start creating products with your customers and their experience in mind!

On May 8, Kavitha Krishnan, Senior User Experience Strategist at Mattel (American Girl), will help us understand the term “Experience Design.” To do so, we need to look at what experiences really are. Technically, experience can be described as “the sensation of change, the alteration of environment, and the things we can perceive.”

In order to see something new, you have to not see something else – and that is the basis of experience design!

What you can expect:

  • Learn about user experience (UX) design and how to create a distinct competitive advantage
  • Understand the UX maturity model and identify your organization’s maturity model
  • Better understand how experience design can be used to market inexpensively and effectively, create a sense of loyalty, and influence purchase decisions

Join us on May 8 for our last Signature Speaker Series luncheon of the programming year. We will resume our monthly lunceons again in the fall.
