Made my debut as a conference speaker at the World Usability Congress. What a brilliant week.
Gave a 45-minute presentation on the importance of location in creating memorable experiences. It seemed to go down very well, especially when I whipped out the bottle of whisky at the end and promised a wee dram to anyone who was interested (plenty were!).
Ran into a lot of great people, learned a lot, and really enjoyed the atmosphere at what is an engaging and very human event.
