Title: Gaining unique insights into your user’s experience with eye tracking

In this presentation, I invite UX professional to explore how eye tracking can support their quest to design for the future we want. Through a better understanding of user experiences based on deeper and objective insights, we can drive a positive change for better designed products both on the digital platforms and in real life that have a huge impact on the world. During this session I’ll explain what eye tracking is and why it makes a difference to implement it in UX research methodology.
