AGENDA FOR THE EVENING

PANEL DISCUSSION

Our three panelists have had quite varied design career paths. The panel discussion will dive into their journeys, the career hacks they learned, the mistakes they’d warn you about and how they found their north star. Leverage the learnings from their experiences, to help craft your own career path.

NETWORKING

We’ve carved out plenty of time for all of us to catch up with other senior folks in the city and share our own respective challenges around collaborations esp. in large orgs. As always, you can stand awkwardly by the drinks or focus on the food platters alone. We won’t judge!
