World Tour | March 25, 2008

Somewhat unintentionally I seem to have arranged what almost amounts to a world tour over the next couple of months.

Things kick off in London with the Future of Web Apps on the 17-18th April. My half day Guerrilla Usability Testing Workshop has proved particularly popular and I was just informed this morning that the session has sold out.

I’m then flying out to New Zealand to do a series of full day usability workshops with those lovely guys from Webstock. I’ll be starting in Auckland on the 5th May, then flying down to Wellington for the 8th May, before finishing up in Christchurch on the 12th. I’ve never been to the North Island before, but absolutely love NZ, so am really looking forward to it. Incidentally Tantek will be reprising the sell out workshop he first debuted at dConstruct last year the day after my sessions, so well worth checking out.

I’m then hot-footing it over to Melbourne to speak at the newly formed Web Directions South: UX on the 15-16th. The line-up for the conference looks amazing so it’s a must for all antipodean user experience practitioners out there. I’ll be doing a session titled Designing the User Experience Curve and a full day workshop on — you guessed it — Guerrilla Usability Testing.

I was supposed to be hopping over the pacific for @media SF on the 22nd May but sadly the event has now been postponed. Instead I’ll be heading back home to feed my plants and do a spot of laundry before An Event Apart Boston.

AEA Boston is set for the 23rd-24th June and has an all star cast including Jared Spool, Jeff Veen and Doug Bowman to name but three. Jeffrey and Eric always put on a fine show so I’d highly recommend going. And to sweeten the pot a little, quote the following code when booking and you’ll get $50 off the ticket price. Now don’t say I never get you anything.


All that travelling should leave me feeling pretty jet lagged, not to mention putting a big dent in my Edenbee profile. So time to plant some trees and look into other ways to reduce the environmental impact of my flights. Now if somebody would just organise a conference that didn’t involve air travel, that would be great.

That’s too bad about @media SF. I was really looking forward to going to San Francisco for the first time.

Blimey… a travel schedule to rival Jeremy’s! ;) Hope I’ll still be able to pop down to Brighton to see you chaps before you and I both leave the country…

Wow, that sounds amazing doing a world tour of seminars, that is what I want to do with website promotion and marketing.
