Design for Europe: A vision for design leadership

Design for Europe: A vision for design leadership

1 June 2014


The Design Management Institute (DMI) is hosting a two-day event focusing on the new ways to reshape organizations and drive social and economic change. 

As part of the event, titled Making Change By Design, our Head of Design, Sonja Dahl will be presenting on the future role of design leadership. This interactive session, which will also include presentations from three industry experts, will provide an opportunity to debate, define and capture some of the key themes and topics that will form the basis of the debate behind the European Design Innovation Platform.

Each speaker will offer different perspectives based on their own unique experiences from across a range of design sectors and industries. You will have the opportunity to participate in the discussion and contribute your own insights that will help shape an understanding of the opportunities and challenges ahead.
