|Presentations > Enterprise IA Seminar
Developing a unified web site or intranet for a large, decentralized organization is the Holy Grail for many of today's Internet professionals. This daylong seminar is for managers and web professionals who desperately want to tie together content in a rational, user-centered way, regardless of content ownership issues, cultural hurdles, and turf battles.
"Unlike many industry thought leaders' presentations that explain theoretical but unrealistic doctrines, Lou's seminar struck a nice balance between what should be done and what could be done in the sometimes contentious, always political, corporate setting. His common sense approach of injecting sound IA principles into small windows of opportunity was spot-on."
Michael Padilla, User Experience Director, Radian Guaranty
"Lou's deep understanding of information architecture and engagement with the participants provided the framework for a great learning experience... I came away with a host of ideas and leads to explore further."
Anna Gifford, Information Architect, Victoria Online
"I found it extremely informative and eye opening... excellent speaker."
David Wierbiki, Senior Graphic Designer, Deloitte & Touche
"Rarely does one get such value from a seminar. This pragmatic, practical approach delivered what I needed to make a start. I feel significantly less overwhelmed now."
Peter Smith, Coatings Intranet Program Manager, Akzo Nobel
"Even if you think you know everything there is about information architecture, Lou's seminar takes you further; it helps you develop an IA strategy for your own organisation, and helps you build a network of colleagues who are addressing similar challenges."
Paul Nattress, Content Editor, npower
"Practical, intelligent information on how to actually deal with the politics and pitfalls in an enterprise environment. More than just best practices and things to avoid, Lou helps you understand how to get things done and how to handle obstacles in the 'real world'."
Cynthia Pae-Moebius, Information Design Specialist, MCI
"Packed with…big picture strategies and practical techniques."
Marcia Morante, President, KCurve, Inc.
