What attendees said about recent workshops
Workshop: "Enterprise Information Architecture" with Louis Rosenfeld
"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.
"Extremely helpful…has me thinking about a number of ways to really improve our sites."
Jon Booth, Website Architect, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
"...provided realistic approaches to dealing with IA in an enterprise setting that I could start putting into practice immediately..."
Michele Saunders, Information Systems Librarian, University of Arizona Libraries
Workshops: "Principles of Information Architecture" and "Elements of Web Navigation" with James Kalbach
"A very well-structured and compact workshop on information architecture and navigation design. Through many real-world examples and a varied set of exercises, the method become quite useful, and the audience could directly benefit from Kalbach's experience."
Hans-Joachim Rau, Senior Consultant, namics (Germany)GmbH
"The workshops from James Kalbach conveyed a clear and understandable overview of information architecture and navigation design. The alternation between presentation, group exercises, and discussion was very beneficial to the workshops."
Jens-Ole Boelsen, Otto, Hamburg, Germany
