We are logical beings right? The latest cognitive research says we rarely understand why we do the things we do and all of our decisions are based on emotion, not logic. This sounds like bad news for marketers, but it's not. When you understand how people behave you can design products, services and materials that customers love for irrational reasons. Ross Johnson of 3.7 Design brings clear thinking, a holistic understanding of the web, and a good sense of humor to the presentation.Presentation Level: Intermediate

Feb. 28 & 29 and Mar. 5-7 & 11-14. Jacqui Robbins directs this new local theater company in the acclaimed contemporary playwright Jeffrey Hatcher’s lively 1998 comedy, a murder mystery about good intentions gone horribly awry and the shocking deceptiveness of appearances. “What Corbin Knew appears to be a smart farce with wittier-than-average dialogue. But the play contains a clever structural twist that emerges in the second act, setting the comedy on its ear.” says Milwaukee Sentinel reviewer Damien Jacques. Cast: Matt Cameron, Rebecca Hardin, Roy Sexton, Lyn Saunders Warren, and Russ Schwartz.
