    Presentation Title:

    How to create products that people crave.

    Presentation Synopsis:

    A lot of time, money and resources get wasted developing products that ultimately end up in a landfill site or stored in a database graveyard. To have successful products we must connect with all of the people who interact with that product over the duration of its life after production. Put down those marketing reports and business forecasts  and cancel the surveys and questionnaires. Learn how to be mindful of peoples desires and implant your ideas into peoples hearts
