In conversation: People-centred leadership in tough times

As a design leader, you will experience many highs and lows. Audrey joins us for a timely conversation about the human-centered approach she has learned to take with one of the lowest moments for any leader—having to lead an organization through a layoff.

Talk details coming soon.

In conversation: Adaptive leadership

- SFJAZZ Center

Leadership is rarely easy. It is often the role of the leader to steady the ship, to help provide clarity in times of uncertainty. But how do we adapt to these changes? How do you stay resilient along the way?

Katie joins us for a conversation about adapting to changing landscapes based on experiences of...

  • Switching modes from rapid hiring to reducing team size and hyper-prioritisation.
  • Merging marketing creative and product design to build coherency to the customer journey.
  • Leading organisations through different stages of maturity from startups, to pre-IPO and beyond.
