About this Keynote

The words we use and the tone we take are part of the user experience from the moment someone follows a link or looks at a search result. But how do we use that to help our organisations?

Sarah Richards says that on digital platforms, we have 3 seconds to get someone’s attention - and 5 to keep it. So how do we do that? Through compelling content on- and offline, Sarah will take us through examples she has worked on from governments around the world and non-profits here in the UK. She’ll explain why some of the most simple things can have the biggest impact.
