Published on

This is a preview of a UIE Virtual Seminar which will take place on February 3, 2011. You can purchase access to the seminar at http://www.uie.com/events/virtual_seminars/.

You don't get a second chance to make a great first impression. Have your project kickoff meetings become stale, remote, or awkward conversations? After having one too many expensive and unproductive kickoffs, Happy Cog reinvented it's project definition process around full-day, interactive activities and collaborative design exercises. Kevin will answer the question “are meetings toxic?” and if so, why? Then he’ll explore approaches for identifying business strategy, company culture, and project risks before you even shake your client's hand for the first time, and walk you through the strategy behind Happy Cog's kickoff processes for clients like Zappos.com and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. You’ll leave this seminar having the tools to build dynamic kickoff meetings that are as actionable as they are enjoyable.
