Bjarke Pedersen:
The Experience Transformation Toolkit

An Experience Audit is a toolkit helping you to understand how your museum, event, store, service or office is actually perceived and experienced by your audience. Is the physical space facilitating what you want your visitors to experience? Do your employees create a warm, safe and professional environment so people dare to engage with them and with your products or services? Is all information available at the right place at the right time?
Bjarke and Rebecka will teach you how to look at your office, location or event with an experience design mindset! Then we will workshop and help each other to create the first steps of your own Experience Audit.
