Now in its fifth year, Leading Design is a sell out conference for people leading design teams, overseeing design direction, or instilling a culture of design within their organisations. Our past speakers have worked at Facebook, Netflix, IBM Design Studio, Spotify and Google. This year we are assembling a wonderful group of design leaders who will cover a wide range of topics to help you make the most of your Design Leadership journey.
