Launching at London Design Festival 2020, ReDesign Business is a pioneering digital programme exploring what design and business can learn from each other.

14–19 September 2020

This year’s London Design Festival is set to be very different to previous years, and not simply because it will take place against a backdrop of pandemic in a period of mass social transition. At a key moment during the international design calendar, coinciding with the festival, ReDesign Business — curated by Propela and in partnership with Design Council, Design District and Innovate UK — is an online conference that argues for a closer relationship between design and business.

A different kind of conference

Founded by Deborah Rey-Burns’ maverick global speaker-agency Propela, ReDesign Business introduces a packed daily calendar of digital events to LDF, including talks, immersive workshops, panel discussions and fireside chats – and even a nightly sleep lab session to end each day on a restorative note.

15 talks, 5 workshops, 1 masterclass, 3 networking sessions and 6 Sleep Labs – all over 6 days
One £20 ticket provides unlimited access

ReDesign Business will have an impressive line-up of talks, masterclasses, and workshops spanning six days of events, each hosted on the online video platform Twenty Three. A £20 ticket allows unlimited access to the live programme, and will include on-demand access to every event until 19 November 2020, so attendees have the chance to rewatch the lectures or catch up on any sessions they miss.

With topics ranging from rebuilding brands after Covid to tapping into the inherent creativity of your inner child; insightful hacks for more equitable business cultures to the need to design for happiness over profit or efficiency, the ReDesign Business programme aims to inform and inspire both business leaders and design professionals alike.

Design can handle ambiguity and uncertainty – key for survival in our after-Covid world. Humans are innately innovative – if design businesses can adapt to embrace innovation and critical thinking, who knows how healthy our societies, economies, and even governments could be?

Deborah Rey-Burns, Founder, Propela

The conference’s speakers and workshop leaders represent a global roster of visionary thinkers from the worlds of design and business. Working in collaboration with Vanessa Dewey, a creative leader who was worked with iconic brands such as Mattel, Adobe and D&AD, Deborah Rey-Burns and the Propela team have curated an extraordinary line-up of individuals with unusual or unique perspectives, each of them offering a bold, transformative vision for the future of business.
