About the Talk

"Mind Your Own Business"

As designers, we need to realize the actual value and potential we bring to the table, especially with the evolution of AI and the current job market. Let's throw away your playbooks, stop worshipping your Silicon Valley idols, and let's dig into empowering design as a voice for strategy, creating business impact, building relationships, and getting others to champion design as a valued partner. Come find out how to be a better role model, and a better designer for the next generation.
