Speakers

Leading Designers

We thought we couldn’t top last year’s line up, but we might just have done it. We’re assembling our dream team of design leaders - people who have run design teams at some of the best known companies around the world. But don’t be fooled into thinking they’ve had it easy. Whether you’ve worked for fast moving tech companies or more traditional organisations there are design challenges aplenty. Listen to a diverse group of speakers discuss how they have embraced the challenges of design leadership in their own unique ways. Here's some of the excellent speakers we have assembled so far rom Lyft, Pinterest, Monzo with many more to come. Our line-up isn't yet complete so check back as we'll be adding more names, and announce our schedule soon.
