✍️ Visual perception and memory: how to win on the web with better visual communication

We all know that 3 seconds is all it takes to lose the attention of visitors to our web pages. But there’s hope yet! We can all win on the web by leveraging the brain’s strengths and limitations. An understanding of how the human brain processes visual information can greatly help us win our visitors over and keep them where we want them, instead of losing them to cyberspace.

By knowing how the brain (and people!) interpret visual language, we can create designs and graphics that communicate clearly and are effective on a cognitive as well as an emotional level. This will lead to better UX and better sales for our clients. This talk gives a brief introduction to this fascinating topic, with practical, actionable examples accompanying the theory.

🗣 Presented by Piccia Neri. With a background in art theory, Piccia has been a practising designer for over 2 decades, working with major cultural institutions as well as top London agencies on global brands. Piccia led the creative direction of the design department at the British Film Institute, London. She was vice-president of the Chartered Society of Designers (UK)[masked].

After 20 years in London Piccia currently runs her own global web, UX & design consultancy agency from Spain. Follow her @Piccia (https://twitter.com/Piccia)

✍️ Small achievable actions lead to big change

How can you grow your business and achieve your dreams? You may have a range of failed projects or ideas that you never perused.

In this talk, Lee shares how he's been able to grow his business and personal brand in the WordPress space by going against the "hustle" and "hack" mentality. He has created a system for success that his 13-year-old daughter can follow and his 53-year-old best friend.

The moral of the tortoise and the hare is surprisingly true! If you are impatient to achieve success, this talk is for you.

🗣 Presented by Lee Jackson. Lee helps thousands of agency owners across the world fall back in love with their agencies. He runs a membership community for agency owners, Agency Trailblazer, and hosts the Agency Trailblazer Podcast, which has over 12,000 downloads a month.

He’s the go-to expert when it comes to removing the stress out of running an agency, and has spoken at conferences and events across the UK. Follow him @leejacksondev (https://twitter.com/leejacksondev)
