New York 2022

A hybrid event for design leaders. Join us for re-connection, inspiration & learning.
Brought to you by

Leading Design is a sell-out event for people leading design teams, overseeing design direction, or championing a culture of design within their organisations. Our speakers are the leaders of innovative design teams at companies like 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 navigate your own design leadership journey. You can join us in-person or online.

Three reasons to join us at Leading Design New York

Learn from industry leaders

Our industry leading speakers will share years of experience in finding talent, building culture, structuring and developing their teams, managing upwards, coping with stress, and maintaining personal wellbeing.

Re-connect with your peers

Design leadership can be hard; especially at first. The best way to meet this challenge is through the support of your peers, so we’ve created plenty of opportunities to meet like-minded design leaders, swap war stories, and build relationships we know will last the rest of your careers.

Experience a unique programme

There are already lots of great conferences aimed at practitioners. So we’ve put together a unique programme designed specifically for leaders. We know that by the end of this event we will have helped you tackle some of your most pressing challenges, enabling you to become the most effective design leader possible.
