Why is it so hard to build a culture able to consistently deliver good design and the right product?

The summer break was refreshing, and it is time to tackle the hard questions with the community again. I am excited to see all of you and our panel:

- Hamid Berkrdi, a multi-disciplinary Product Designer, turned Design Strategy leader. 

- Karlijn Deforche, a Manager with a fantastic experience of large scale transformations.

- Karen Lin, a former digital agency consultant, now head of product & UX at BloomMe.

We are going to talk about the outcomes, the big ideas behind buzzwords and the creative culture. 


I will see you at 19:00, 8/8/2019 (A lucky date).
