“Paul was at Elite Camp 2016, not just attending but also speaking. He was the opening keynote speaker and with a reason. He spoke about mindset, not only for us during our work but it also got us in the right mindset for the entire Elite Camp.
Furthermore I was one of the lucky ones to receive a copy of ” The growth strategy thats being ignored”, a great book where he picked the minds of the CRO industry’s leaders. A must read for anyone who has anything to do with CRO.”
“I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Paul and PRWD on a number of projects over several years with different businesses. Paul has truly expert knowledge of the CRO and UX landscape which has allowed him to build a fantastic team at PRWD; it’s been great to see the growth from just a couple of people when I first worked with Paul to the sizeable team they have today. The results from the most recent project I managed with PRWD were outstanding and I very much look forward to working with Paul and the team again in future.”
I met Paul at Digital Elite Camp 2016 where he gave a very inspiring talk. Rather than talking about CRO tactics and tips, what most speakers covered, Paul decided to take a different approach; he spoke about mindset, and how important this aspact in our line of work is. He inspired me, and many with me, to keep on developing myself and, which was my key learning from his talk, BE THE CHANGE. Thanks Paul.
“I attended an Ecommerce Usability & Persuasion Econsultancy course led by Paul recently and felt that he not only balanced teaching, facilitating discussion and tailoring course content to suit the attendees extremely well but his insight and wealth of experience in usability and online optimisation techniques is fantastic.
He married recent, real-world case studies with activities that allowed us to relate that to our own businesses, identifying problem areas and pinch-points to create a set of hypotheses and tests to take away and be able to present these at an executive level.
Paul is also a down-to-Earth, friendly guy with a great personality and I hope the opportunity arises to work together in the future.”
“Paul is a commercially astute conversion rate optimisation professional who truly understands how to deliver insight and results and communicate this across multiple stakeholders. He is one of the strongest communicators and clearest thinkers I have encountered in the burgeoning industry of online optimisation. Paul and the PRWD team delivered outstanding results for Sliderobes – a significant increase in leads at a lower cost per acquisition which resulted in an overall reduction in spend and cost savings. The CRO programme was transformational.”
“Paul adds a very personal touch, being constantly on hand to help and explain using his many years of experience to improve and build on conversion rate and overall user experience.”
“I engaged Paul to deliver an advanced training session on CRO for a team of people within my organisation. I found Paul to be a great trainer, the content was extremely well prepared and delivered. It was clear that Paul’s knowledge and expertise in this area is strong. What also came across is Paul’s passion for CRO. If I was in a senior Marketing role looking to instil a culture of optimisation within my organisation I would have no hesitation in working with Paul.”
“I had the pleasure of interviewing Paul. He is a knowledgeable and dynamic speaker. He has a solid understanding of testing process to optimize conversion results. If you’re looking to maximize gains on your website, look to Paul and his team at PRWD.”
“I had the chance to meet Paul at SEMdays during an usability workshop. Simply stated Paul is THE MASTER of all the e-Commerce Usability, Persuasion and Conversion best practices ever known. So, if you need an outstanding expert on usability to help you standout from the crowd, look no further.”
“I attended Usabiity and Persuasion in Ecommerce at Econsultancy London. Paul took the course and instantly came across as warm and friendly. His powerful and educated insights were matched only by his ability to listen to others and empower his audience to make valued and left field observations. Approachable and and knowledgeable I would be keen to attend further courses lead by Paul and I left the course refreshed and eager to continue his great work with my clients and colleagues.”
