Join us for Design Leaders Conference 2021 on Thursday, 18th November 2021.

A half-day format this year to reflect, as the dust settles on the disruption of the past 18 months and we focus on the significant opportunity to design a better future.

As we navigate uncertain times, with many trends accelerated we need to focus now on taking action to design a more sustainable future for people and planet alike.

We’re bringing together thought-leaders and subject matter experts to lead business-focused conversations and learning on leading and managing design, the requirement for creativity and innovation, and the power of design to deliver meaning and facilitate change at this time of transformation.

We’ll take a deep dive into 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 and opportunities ahead as we work to reimagine a better world and harness the power of design to facilitate and enable the innovation and the changes demanded of us at this time in our personal lives, our businesses and society.  Facilitated panel discussions will allow for interaction and collaboration.

An unmissable opportunity to share ideas, learn up to date trends and insights, reflect, rethink and reimagine the future.

Who should attend?

Key stakeholders and decision-makers – agency owners, design and creative directors and account managers, and anyone leading a creative team or managing design as a strategic resource.
