Felicity McCarthy, MC for 3XE Conversion
Our MC for 3XE Conversion is Felicity McCarthy founder of sparkdigital.ie. Felicity McCarthy has over 18 years experience in digital marketing, having worked in International Marketing Roles for Facebook, eBay & Dell. Felicity now runs her own business, Sparkdigital, whose impressive client list including Daft.ie, Irish Times Training, Facebook EMEA, Pinterest UK, Grant Thornton Ireland, dylan hotel, AIB Startup Academy, Azon Recruitment Group, Bank of Ireland, IDA Ireland, Microsoft Ireland, 123.ie, Gigaset Europe & TopOil to name just a few.
Nearly every business claims they are “customer-centric“, yet reality proves they’re far from it. A product-led, rather than customer-led, company culture and mindset is what most businesses and most employees live with every single day. At the core of intelligent, strategic conversion optimisation is a customer-centric mindset. Most importantly, customer centricity is the one thing that transcends any business, of any size, around the world – no matter how many A/B tests you can run and how much you spend on acquisition. In my talk I will share and explain what is the number 1 approach we have used at PRWD for over 15 years to help our clients around the world become customer-centric.
Every single decision we take is driven by an emotion or an instinct. The question is, which emotions are driving your customers? Because depending on which one, it’s either driving them to stay, complete the purchase or leave.
In this session, Neil will give you an insight into how Biometrics is helping the CRO sector to evolve into one that optimises for customers emotions and not just for website usability.

These workshops are all designed to provide you with “how to” know-how. The facilitators will take you behind the hype and show you how to actually implement certain aspects of content and social media marketing. The workshops are designed to ensure that you take away a clear and practical understanding on how to put your new-found marketing knowledge to use. You can choose to attend 2 of these workshops from the options below. Of course, your colleagues may elect to attend different workshops and you can compare notes afterwards. Each workshop is 30 minutes long.
