      Presentation: 'Simply Wonderful' Neil Gibb
      -- Simply Wonderful will be an entertaining, thought-provoking and challenging look at the power of simplification over complexity. During the talk Neil will show why he believes simplification is fundamental to great design and communication, with examples from some of the leading practitioners in the field, as well as showing how simplification fits into the overall design process.
      - For the last four years Neil has been making a living primarily in
      the e-world: first as a senior consultant at Shandwick Interactive
      (now part of Zentropy), where his team won a DBA Design Effectiveness
      Award for shell.com, then as a Director of User Experience at
      both Sapient and Scient. Prior to that Neil was a Senior Consultant
      in Siegel & Gale's Simplified Communications team. His second novel,
      'Bleached White', was published last year, and he is currently
      co-authoring a new book with Seamus Smyth entitled 'High
      Growth Innovation'.
