16:50 – 17:20 Five Chronic Diseases of Mediocre or Dying eCommerce – Valentin Radu (CEO Omniconvert)

Valentin Radu Omniconvert Speaker GPeC Ecommerce SUMMIT

“It’s been 13 years since I entered the eCommerce world. During this time I was a co-founder of an eCommerce that has reached 8 million euros in annual revenue and then successfully stagnated.

I participated in the expansion and then the failed attempt to revive an eCommerce with 15 million euros and international presence in 6 countries.

I offered consultancy to dozens of eCommerce with revenues ranging between 0.5 to 500 million euros and I founded Omniconvert – a technology and team of experts that helps hundreds of eCommerce businesses around the world to increase their conversion rate.

All these years, I have identified 5 major diseases that lead to either a safe mediocrity or the disappearance of the market. I will reveal them, as I have seen them, in my presentation at GPeC SUMMIT May 27: Featuritis, Dataract, Fatal Indifference, Acute Rush, and Vocal Insufficiency.

On the causes, prophylaxis and treatment, in detail at the presentation.” – Valentin Radu, Omniconvert CEO


17:25 – 17:55 1, 2, 3 for Better Mobile Design – Steven Hoober (CEO 4outh Mobile)

GPeC SUMMIT Bucharest Romania - Stevben Hoober 4ourth Mobile Speaker Mobile UX pentru e-commerce

It’s okay to use hamburger menus! We know how people really use their mobile phones and tablets and have developed a human-centered design system to encourage your eCommerce users to find and understand your products better to close sales more easily.

Mobile touchscreens are not new. We have data on how people use their mobile phones and tablets. We can use this to create human-centered design systems for more consistent and usable design.

In this session you will learn a very simple set of tactics to place content, create more useful interactions, and design a consistent and readable navigation and way-finding system for your eCommerce mobile app or website. 

These principles are explored more and applied in Steven’s Mobile UX Masterclass on May 28th .


18:00 – 18:30 Measuring & Optimizing Beyond Revenue – Hannah Thorpe (Founder & Business Director FOUND.)

Hannah Thorpe speaking at GPeC SUMMIT - The most important E-Commerce Event in CEE

So you’ve set your strategy, you’ve implemented an analytics platform, and you’re optimizing for revenue. But, do you have the whole picture? Do you know what’s making your users tick? And, do you know what’s ticking them off?

It’s time to explore beyond sales, transactions and ROI, and to build a deeper understanding of what your audience wants, thinks and feels, and where you’re letting them down.

It’s time to measure attention, engagement and experience metrics, to unlock the next level of performance.

Gerry McGovern speaker pentru prima data in Romania la GPeC E-Commerce SUMMIT - Top 5 Experti internationali in User Experience

If you’re designing or managing a website or app, how do you know what really matters to your customers? How do you know what really doesn’t matter? Once you’ve identified what really matters, how do you ensure that these top tasks are easy to find? How do you ensure that they are easy to do? As you change your website or app, how do you know the customer experience is getting better? How do you develop customer experience metrics that can convince management you’re doing a good job?

Gerry McGovern’s Top Tasks Masterclass will answer these questions and a lot more. You will learn how to clinically and objectively observe customer behavior so as to derive management metrics. So as to truly understand what’s working and what isn’t—and how to make things better.

  • Managers of Digital Teams

You can’t just build a successful mobile app or website without first understanding how the user thinks and what they need from you. Everything we design and build exists as a part of an ecosystem, the physical and digital environment in which the user perceives and uses it.

In this 3-hour Masterclass, we will discuss how to think specifically about the real use cases and how to pick the right technology to meet opportunities for your organization and your users.

We will practice using existing, well-proven UX design tools and methods to understand users, and to design your mobile products to engage real people.

We’ll wrap up by reviewing the actual products you are working on, to leverage what we’ve just learned to improve them even more.
