Leading Business By Design Summit 2014

Leading Business By Design Summit 2014

13 January 2014

We’re delighted to announce that Steph McGovern joins the line-up of top speakers for our Leading Business by Design summit, which will take place on 12 February at the British Museum in London.

The award-winning business reporter will chair the event, and we look forward to the unique insights Steph will bring to the day, drawing on her experience reporting from the frontline of UK industry.

You might not know that as a teenager Steph won Young Engineer for Britain, after a design she created for Black & Decker saved the company over £1m. So, who could be a better guide through our day exploring the value of design to business?

As well as looking at how design adds value to products and services, Leading Business by Design will explore how a company can create strong working culture by using design. These themes emerged from research we carried out with Warwick Business School.

Other contributors to the Summit include Baroness Lane-Fox and household names such as Waitrose, Barclays and Virgin Atlantic. The full line up of speakers, and information about how to register, can be found here.
