Design Leadership

Wednesday, Nov. 8

Design leadership embodies the essence of user-centricity, creative problem-solving, and the possession of a diverse toolbox. To excel in the realm of design leadership, one must embrace these principles.

At this year's conference, we have curated an impressive lineup of design leaders who will explore a wide range of topics to support you and your organization on your own design leadership journey.

We will commence with a compelling keynote. Throughout the day, esteemed design leaders from and Hygraph will share their invaluable insights. They will demonstrate how they have applied their knowledge and expertise to propel their organisations forward by identifying and fulfilling the needs of their users and customers.

While four other conference tracks run concurrently, you can utilize the breaks, plenary sessions, and popular evening social events to broaden your perspective. Engage in stimulating conversations with peers from various disciplines and industries, enriching your understanding and expanding your network. For those with flexibility, consider extending your stay to attend the additional conference days. Don't miss this remarkable opportunity to learn from a diverse community of design leaders and cultivate meaningful connections that will propel your career forward.

Join us at the Design Leadership track and immerse yourself in a world of inspiration, collaboration, and professional growth.
