Title: How Marketing Often Confuses The Destination with The Journey

Summary: Mapping and location based services are on a journey to make life easier for people - however, is this what creates the most value for people. Ask them how they want to get there and they'll tell you the fastest way, even though the scenic route may be more fulfilling. Adam's talk will focus on how to build value into the customer experience, and to ensure that we don't take what the consumer says they want too seriously. With a number of examples pulled from marketing sciences and his own creative consultancy Adam will mount a case for effort over ease, and magic over miles.

Adam's talk will explore how people process information, how they make decisions, and most importantly how to engage with them in a way that adds value. Adam will also briefly cover off his own partially successful attempt at building a mapping brand.
