  2. Measuring the Customer Experience by Gerry McGovern—An Event Apart Denver 2017

    The best way to understand digital user experience is to measure the time and effort required to complete top tasks.

In this free 60-minute video, captured live at An Event Apart: Denver Special Edition aneventapart.com/event/denver-2017, Customer Carewords CEO Gerry McGovern shares a robust method for accurately measuring the time it takes your customers to complete their top tasks. You will learn a set of management metrics covering the ability of the customer to do what they came to do, how long it took them, what the problems are, and what needs to be done to make things better. Armed with this knowledge, you’ll be ready to continually improve the customer experience to faster and more accurately satisfy your users’ fondest desires. Gerry McGovern (aneventapart.com/speakers/gerry-mcgovern) helps large organizations become more customer-centric on the web.

  3. “From Research to Redesign” by Jeffrey Zeldman—An Event Apart Denver 2017

    Meaningful redesigns start with research. From competitive surveys to making sense of analytics, and from stakeholder interviews to customer research, every fact we uncover is another step in the direction of a design that solves real problems. In this hour-long presentation captured live at An Event Apart Denver (aneventapart.com/event/denver-2017), An Event Apart co-founder Jeffrey Zeldman (aneventapart.com/speakers/jeffrey-zeldman) shows how, the more you learn about your product’s business strategy and its customer’s needs and desires, the better your designs will work.

    Dubbed “King of Web Standards” by Business Week, Jeffrey Zeldman (@zeldman (twitter.com/zeldman)) founded and publishes A List Apart (alistapart.com/) “for people who make websites,” co-founded publishing house A Book Apart (abookapart.com/), and leads studio.zeldman (studio.zeldman.com/), a design consultancy in New York. Jeffrey teaches interaction design at New York’s School of Visual Arts (interactiondesign.sva.edu/) and has written two books, notably the foundational web standards text Designing With Web Standards (wikiwand.com/en/DesigningwithWeb_Standards), currently in a 3rd Edition translated into 15 languages.

  4. “Story First: Crafting Products That Engage” by Donna Lichaw—An Event Apart video

    While many of us seek out the newest and shiniest tools, methods, and processes to build more successful products and services, we often overlook one of the oldest, leanest, most effective tools out there: the structurally sound story. In the moment, we humans experience everything as if it were a story. The better the story, the more likely we are to want to use a product, continue to use it, pay to use it, and recommend it to others. In this presentation captured live at An Event Apart Denver (aneventapart.com/event/denver-2017), Donna Lichaw (aneventapart.com/speakers/donna-lichaw) (@dlichaw (twitter.com/dlichaw/)) brilliantly explains how taking a story-first approach to product design and development helps you build more successful websites, apps, campaigns, and services that excite your customers, draw them in, incite them to action, and keep them engaged over time. Donna (donnalichaw.com/) is a certified professional coach, speaker, and author. She has spent 20 years at the forefront of technology helping leaders at places like Google, Apple, Logitech, Capital One, Central Park Conservancy, and WNYC develop successful products and services and now uses that same passion and approach to develop successful people—one story at a time. You can learn more about her process in her book, *The User’s Journey: …

  10. My Response to Gary Vee & “Passive Income is B******t”

    Gary Vaynerchuk recently published a podcast episode and video about how passive income is BS. This video is my response.

    I love Gary, and he and his work (especially his book, Crush It) have been instrumental in my success as an entrepreneur, and I’m thankful that he has used his giant platform to bring to light what’s out there, and what is actually real.

    As always, Gary keeps it real, and although we have different styles, you may be surprised about my take on his rant.

    Here are the links to Gary’s "Passive Income is B******t" videos and podcast episode, I recommend you give them a listen:
