Description: \”The breakdowns we are currently experiencing in the world are enough to alarm even the hardiest of souls. Sitting back and watching is simply no longer an option. Re-Thinking … Design is an opportunity for the community of smart designers to collaborate on the leadership role that Design should take to shape our future. We will examine how Design thinking is becoming a change agent for transforming the deep fissures in our cultural and business systems, and creating emerging opportunities to elevate the impact of our contributions.

Re-Thinking … Design will be co-chaired by two key thought leaders of our time, Roger Martin and Darrel Rhea. They will challenge the Design community to re-think Design in both macro and micro applications. At this event you can expect leading edge conversations that inspire. You’ll hear not just contemporary theory, but practical examples of premier business leaders demonstrating how they are changing the economy, healthcare, technology and culture—illuminating how design thinking is making it happen.\”
