Web Performance Workshops

Our world-leading performance experts will transform your in-house expertise, so you can build and maintain faster, more profitable websites

Achieve and maintain a faster, more reliable website by bringing key skills in-house

 

Making websites faster can be challenging, both technically and culturally. Developers need to know how to effect change and where best to focus their efforts. The business needs to understand the importance of performance and its impact on the bottom line.

 

Slow websites can have a big, negative impact on user experience. The result can be fewer pageviews, poorer conversion rates and less revenue.

 

Sometimes, the best way to deliver long-term performance improvements is to make sure you have a certain level of knowledge and skills in-house.

We can deliver web performance training tailored to your needs. So before doing anything else, we’ll work to understand your website, your processes and your business model. We’ll then agree the best approach to take – what training to deliver to which audiences, taking into account each individual’s skill level and objectives.

The training itself is usually run over one or two days. It can take place at your premises, at one of our offices (in Leatherhead or Manchester) or at an external venue to suit you. Our experts include a number of experienced trainers who know how to deliver practical, engaging and memorable workshops.

Every session is different, but we’ll typically cover some or all of the following, depending on the audience:
