Every successful Internet startup recognizes that designing for the web and mobile goes way beyond shiny things and a fancy UI. To get traction, you need a site that is easy to navigate, reflects the personality of your brand, communicates your story and ultimately, turns site visitors into customers.

- The Importance of Design from the get-go
- MySpace Redesign
- Where to find Inspiration
- How to attract and find the right designer
- How to convert visitors to customers
- How to Overhaul something that is dying
Registration starts at 8:30am. Grab a coffee, pastry and settle in before Mike kicks things off at 9am.
