Leading Design was a world-class conference for people leading design teams, overseeing design direction, or striving to instil a culture of design within their organisations. Our past speakers have worked at Figma, Netflix, IBM Design Studio, Spotify and Google. For San Francisco 2023 we assembled a wonderful group of design leaders who covered a wide range of topics to help inspire participants on their own design leadership journey.
Leading Design has been running since 2016 with conferences, retreats, coaching and meetups to guide you through every stage of your leadership journey. Take a look at our past events.
The first stand-alone structure in the country built specifically for jazz, the SFJAZZ Center was designed by award-winning San Francisco architect Mark Cavagnero, who worked with acoustician Sam Berkow and theater designer Len Auerbach to create a main performance space with the acoustic quality of a great concert hall and the relaxed intimacy of a jazz club.
