Before Mastery: Lessons learned trying to master Design Leadership

Wed 25 October 17
12:30 - 13:00

For several years I've been on a quest to master design leadership. In this talk I will share what I’ve learned integrating design at startups, scaling design at Spotify, and traveling the globe to meet other design leaders. My hope is that wherever you are in your journey, you’ll find something to help illuminate your path forward to mastery.
