Don’t forget to sign up for the next presentation in the Food for Thought Series on Thursday, February 17, 2011.

Speaker Hannah Byrne will be presenting her presentation, “Viewing Your Website through the Eyes of Your Customer”.

The presentation will include topics ranging from how your customers perceive your company through the lens of your web site, how to make-over your site on a budget, effective (and free) content management tools to allow your staff to easily edit your site and much more.

Hannah Byrne is the owner and Chief Creative Officer of Smack Dab Studios. She serves as the “glue” holding together a team of graphic designers, web developers, app designers, illustrators and other right-brain types. Under Hannah’s leadership, Smack Dab Studios delivers custom web and graphic design solutions to clients across the Southeast and beyond. Hannah has earned acclaim for successfully bridging the creative world and the business world. In 2010, Georgia Trend honored her as one of the top “40 Under 40” business innovators in the state. In 2011, Savannah Magazine recognized her as one of the top 20 “Generation Next” rising business leaders along the Creative Coast.

Before founding Smack Dab in 2004, Hannah worked with Ben Carter Companies/The Mall of Georgia, Emory University Healthcare System and the Gwinnett Convention & Visitors Bureau, managing increasingly larger budgets and staffs. Hannah was a partner at What’s Up Interactive in Atlanta and served as the company’s Vice President of Creative Services for five years. Throughout her career, she has worked with high profile clients such as UPS, Coca-Cola, Rock-Tenn, Fox Television, Nabisco, Tropicana, among many others.

With her early beginnings as a flutist and her deep knowledge of design, Hannah is sought-after for her out-of-the-box creativity. Over the years, she’s developed significant experience in management, information technology and internet marketing, so she operates equally well in left-brain and right-brain worlds.
