Trust is a hot topic this year as users express interest and concern around the ethics and transparency of tactics their apps and devices employ. Telling your technology product's story is a great way to clarify your company's promise to users and build trust that you will fulfill that promise.
On March 1, join Ryan Walsh from Floodgate — a venture capital firm investing in technology's prime mover founders — for a hands-on workshop on product development within this alternative, audience-based framework. Learn how to design your existing products using storytelling to build trust between your brand and your target audience.
You will learn how to:
- Tell a story with your product + develop a true North
- Design your story to help your audience learn to trust you
- Reduce cognitive load
- Determine whether you are truly building or breaking trust
Participants will be asked to send over their company mission, vision, and values before the workshop. You will receive additional instructions after registration.
