* This event is a partnership with The Valley. They curated the content and selected the speakers for this event.
As products and services keep increasing in scale and complexity, it becomes harder and harder to ensuring all touchpoints offer the same value to your audience.
In this meetup about ‘Connecting brand and audience throughout the whole customer journey’ 2 veterans will share you their personal insights into what makes brand engagement work and how to do this consistently throughout all touchpoints.
Afterwards The Valley has their own in-house bar for you to chat and connect with others.

• Talk #1: Your next designer should be a UX writer — Don Seidenberg
Without words, it’s hard to create a good user experience. Good UX writing can shape your design, improve the sales funnel and make your interactions more meaningful.
Don Seidenberg advocates a content first approach to web design. He will share his thoughts on: storytelling, adding personality to your brand and improving the flow of your customer journey.
Talk #2: Help clients move from a deliverables mindset to being meaningful for people — Marcel Zwiers
"We design for aspiring organizations that strive to be meaningful for people." That is what we do. And if there is one thing we’ve learned over the years, is that most organizations truly value their customer already but they often find it very hard to know what to say. Or how to listen to them. So in order to help them understand their customer and the things they experience, we’ve conducted a lot of research over the years. With persona’s and customer journey maps as our main deliverables. And yet. Looking back, the most value we’ve created isn’t found in the deliverables themselves, but in everything that is happening within the projects.
In his talk Marcel will share the strategies 31Volts has developed to help clients move from a deliverables mindset to being meaningful for people’
