Track Sessions // APRIL 9


In this track, delegates will focus on new ideas, models and best-practices for cultivating the long-term health, stability, and productivity of your creative team. Too often, we make decisions only to meet short term goals, but what can be done to ensure personal and team growth year-after-year? Broad session themes will include:

  • Developing a living design process.
  • Defining a 5-year creative roadmap... and managing to it.
  • Balancing quality of work, team happiness, and business growth.
  • Prototyping for Creative Directors.
  • Showing vs telling: what is your role as a leader? 
  • Practices for long-term team building and retention.
  • Wellness for creative people.
  • Creating the conditions for success in design, business and life.
