Unleashing Your Data Driven User Experience Superhero
Recorded On: 09/27/2019
About this Webinar
Creating happy user experiences (UX) depends on looking at your data. This webinar is designed to provide content managers across all skill levels the tools needed to use basic analytics to make content and layout decisions based on authentic user action rather than personal preference or best guesses.
We’ll move from concept to implementation using several high priority website components such as navigation, default page layouts, typography, and hero images. Participants will also learn how to master the mystical skill of effective mobile testing to ensure UX is reaching peak performance across all device types.
Questions will be fielded throughout the course of the session.
- Develop data driven UX refinement skills and define conversion goals.
- Learn how to identify problems, apply context, then test solutions.

He brings 20 years of global broad-based arts consulting experience to the table and helps clients break the cycle of choosing one-size-fits-none solutions and instead, deliver an option that allows them to get ahead of the tech curve instead of trying to catch up by going slower.
With the vision of legacy support strategy and the delights of creative insights, his mission is to deliver a sophisticated next generation technology designed especially for our business. The first step in that journey began in 2010 when he released The Venture Platform, a purpose-designed managed website development solution designed especially for arts organizations and artists.
His expertise spans across multiple sectors and regularly quoted as an industry expert in media outlets including the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, the Washington Post, The Chronicle of Philanthropy, Dallas Daily News, The Guardian Unlimited, and the Melbourne Age along with more than 100 additional newspapers, trade journals, and magazine outlets.

In 2011, he was featured presenter for Chicago’s TEDx Michigan Ave conference.
For fun, he writes a daily blog about the orchestra business, provides a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, leads a team of intrepid arts pros to hack the arts, founded a free arts admin jobs board, and loves a good coffee drink.
