Make it Social

About this Lightning Talk

This talk is about building a product with the gut whilst designing it with the brain.

I will outline the way we at Make it Social brought innovation to a long standing industry - not by pushing people into deep water and hoping they learn how to swim, but by starting a user on a familiar path and slowly leading them astray.

I will be talking about how making mistakes helped us find the right path (to The Pentlands) and how much knowing your users is important to win arguments (with your 'Visionary CEO').
