title : Differentiation by Design - The art and science of a great user experience
speaker : Dug Falby and Adam Kowaltzke, Avanade
venue : BCS, Southampton Street, London, 18:00 for 18:30 start
As anyone who looks around them can attest, great design is not that common. Yet, as the influence of the iPhone, the iPad and products like Spotify and Facebook's social recommendations re-define our expectations of great experiences, we can see that the quality of user experience makes a huge difference to our relationship with the companies who provide the best experiences.

What is the secret of good experience design? At a business level how do can you use design to increase productivity, stimulate innovation, drive growth and help keep a company competitive?

Are there general principles that anyone can follow, or is it an art that only a few geniuses can do well? As we spend more of our time online, Dug and Adam will offer their answer to this important question.

Dug Falby is Experience Design Director at Avanade having previously managed customer experience at Dixons and user experience at Vodafone. Adam Kowaltzke is Avanade's senior Experience Design manager specialising in user experience and visual design.
