A note for those Pitching
Today is your final opportunity to stand in front of the mirror and practice your pitch! Make it short, snappy and interesting to get those votes!
If you plan on presenting slides, please note that the venue is still using VGA connections for their projectors. Therefore, if you want to present from your own laptop, please try and bring the required adapters. As a backup, we recommend that you have your presentation on a USB stick and in PowerPoint format (the venue can provide Windows Laptops with PowerPoint installed as a backup).
We're delighted to announce that we will close the day with a keynote talk from Barbara Koop, Head of User Experience at one of the most-visited sites of the Netherlands: housing site Funda. Barbara’s talk is called “How to make UX count (and become a superhero)” and will be about measuring and predicting ‘soft’ outcomes like loyalty, allowing you to prove the impact of UX achievements, and to be able to move your company's goals from revenue to relationships, in a measurable way. Don't miss it!
Come and join us for some liquid refreshment at the UXcampAMS17 After party. Straight after the event, we'll be heading to the CREA Café (a 5-minute walk from the Congres Centrum). The UXcampAMS team will most likely be the first ones at the bar so follow us down and we'll make sure the party and good vibes continue. Where the night takes us from there is anyone’s guess!
