Design Leaders Conference is a full-day conference for those leading design teams and design studios to take a deep dive into the topics that matter most right now. Join high-calibre thought-leaders and subject-matter experts to lead business-focused conversations on the future of our industry and the challenges and opportunities of leading design.
This year, we’ll be tackling the hot topics in design leadership and discussing the JOY behind Design, as part of JOY, a celebration of 50 years of the IDI.
Let’s reflect, rethink and reimagine what forges great design leaders, and lift the lid on the topics that pose the greatest challenges now for design and creative business owners, directors, partners and managers who lead design teams and run successful creative studios. With illuminating talks from international speakers on the challenges of managing design and opportunities ahead, debates on the future of design leadership and celebrations of past achievements to fuel and nourish you as together we pave the way into the future.
Facilitated panel discussions will allow for interaction and collaboration.
An unmissable opportunity to build your network, share ideas and learn the most up-to-date trends and best practices, gain industry-focused insights and discuss all the hot topics in Design leadership.
Who should attend?
Key stakeholders and decision-makers – agency owners, design and creative directors, design and account managers, leaders of in-house design and creative teams and any emerging leader who leads or aspires to lead a design team or a successful creative studio into the future or manage design as a strategic resource.
