Advancing the practice of design leadership.
“Face-to-face conversations are the best resources for growing as a design leader. The connections I’ve made here are real, the advice and anecdotes are fresh and relevant, and it’s been equally rewarding to offer some help in return.”
“The more I learn, the more I realize how much more there is to learn. Who better to learn from than design leaders who have been (and are still) in the trenches? The connections that will be made and relationships that will develop within this community will be priceless.”
