Welcome To CRAP Talks. London’s biggest Conversion Rate Optimisation, Analytics and Product meetup. No other meetup or conference brings together so many disciplines into one room – and if they do, they don’t do it with the same quality of speakers. Don’t let the CRAP acronym fool you. In reality we don’t just cover CRO, data analysis and product management, we also cover data science, marketing, User Experience (UX) and a whole bunch more, see our videos below for proof.
So what’s our secret? It’s simple really. We grind away to find the needles in the haystacks. The people who are still down in the trenches quietly innovating and doing impressive work. Those are the people we want to hear from. They may not be seasoned speakers, they may never have even spoken in public before, but we don’t care, they are the types of speakers we have speaking at our events and we work damn hard to find them!

- Please can we stop calling them soft skills - Review processes All the companies I’ve ever worked for have had some sort of a personal review process, usually an annual or bi-annual review.
