About the talk

It is estimated that there are roughly 6 billion connected products in market, and by 2020 this number is expected to jump to 50 billion. Behind the scenes, there are nearly 7 million technology makers striving to make this happen.

How does your product, and your team, stand out from the overcrowded sea of digital experiences and corporate competition to make the most actively engaging digital smart products possible? 

Enter Motivational UX™, a user-focused approach to innovation that brings together behavioral psychology, game design thinking, and "best-of" UX practices. 

Our 9 Principles of Motivational UX™ are used to take a deep dive into how to connect people to digital products in a more meaningful way with the team, but what if the team doesn't play together nicely? 

A product is only as successful as the team behind it.

Parking & transportation information

Garage parking: The closest parking garage is accessed via the Seattle Art Institute building. Going south on Elliott enter the Seattle Art Institute parking garage on your right. Turn left after you have gone through the gate arm. Drive down one level. On the right look out for a blue painted wall that says World Trade Center East. Take a right and enter into that area of the parking garage. Park on P5 or P6 and take the elevator up to floor 1. Note: after hours do not park on P2 or P4 as you will need to take two elevators. 

Alternately, park anywhere in the garage and exit to the street level using the exterior stairs and then walk one block south to the entrance of the World Trade Center East building. There will be volunteers at the main doors to let you in.

Street parking: available.

Bus service: ample bus service is available to the area. Look for your route to Belltown / Pike Place market area on the King County Metro Trip Planner.
