Event description

Description

Join the friendly (yet slightly mischievous) Foxglove foxes for their second networking event at their office!

Make new connections, learn some new skills and of course enjoy some lovely cake and coffee too.

This time we have an internet theme, with a website-themed talk and also some fantastic local business experts who will be happy to chat with you and give you advice about a range of related topics.


We're very pleased to welcome along Andy Adamson from local web development company Web, who will be giving a talk entitled "Human-centred websites designed to convert visitors".

Andy Adamson

Andy will be telling us about the 3 key stages which are required in order to get more enquiries through your website :

  1. Understanding your customers and their intent.

  2. What content they need to help them convert.

  3. How to measure what they do on your website.

"Born in the north west of England, Andy studied illustration then started his career undertaking freelance projects for British Coal, Tennents, British Aerospace and the UK Atomic Energy Authority. In 1995 he founded Web, an internet company at the beginning of the internet revolution. Andy’s work is focused on human-centred design and has created immersive experiences for Manchester International Festival, Visit Scotland and The Lowry.

More recently his ideas have been centred around developing video commerce technology that allows users to make purchases directly from video. His work across a number of sectors allows him to draw insights to form a diverse set of approaches and ideas for solving online challenges."


In addition we are delighted to welcome along the following guests who will be available after Andy's talk to chat to attendees about any questions/problems they have which are related to their areas of expertise :

  • Malin Lernhammar & Jeremy Jusoh (Jusoh Design),who not only run a cool branding agency but have also created both an online creative community called Creative Hold and a new collaboration application for creatives, Kayla.

  • Josh Carson, director of GearedApp, who are experienced mobile and web app developers.

  • Louise Shanahan (The Copy Prescription) who is an experienced copywriter specialising in the health sector.

  • Plus optional free origami lessons where you can learn how to make your own Foxglove fox...
