Mobile is the future of digital, but not all business opportunities in the space were created equal. This workshop will teach companies how to succeed within the space, whether they're currently focused on mobile, or thinking about expanding into it.
Our instructors are pioneers in mobile, and represent decades of experience in mobile entrepreneurship, app development, product marketing, and strategy. Their presentations will provide an in-depth overview of key mobile strategy considerations, and help companies keep checks on mobile executions so that they're accountable to P&L.
Students will learn how to create an elegant user experience that reflects their brand, and to negotiate a multi-platform landscape. You'll also learn what you really need to build an app and how to get started.
