About the Speakers:

Matt Smith LinkedIn / Twitter

Matt Smith is the Product Manager for Skyscanner’s White Label and ‘widget’ products. This sees him managing important relationships with major platforms such as Yahoo. Matt's background in Marketing, Communications & Customer Service has informed his approach to product management which he will share with us.

Skyscanner for Business is the arm of Skyscanner which aims to “power the travel internet”.  But powering some major brands’ sites, with their competing needs, different types of users and pace of change, becomes a delicate balancing act when ultimately they all rely on Skyscanner’s expertise. Some of the topics Matt will cover include:

• Data Driven Decisions: Making users’ travel decisions easier

• Making travel relevant within the context of content

• Limitations: User Journeys, User Flows and A/B testing on hundreds of sites at once
