Design Thinking Europe Forum 2020

London, United Kingdom

Are you maximising the value of design within your organisation?

Design-led organisations are most-effective when design culture is present and embedded in all business functions. While organisations are keen to be referred to as customer-centric and design-led the practical implementation is a challenge.

Following on from the huge success of our US and Australian events, the Design Thinking Europe Forum 2020 gathers European design leaders working on how to effectively implement customer-centric frameworks. Aimed at defining best practice and quantifying the ROI of design. Explore how to champion human-centered mindset shifts and effectively shape design teams.

Join design leaders looking to the future and anticipating challenges which will arise with the next generation of consumers in three days of interactive round-table discussions, workshops, networking and case studies sure to enable you to flourish as a design leader within your organisation.

Main Themes Include:

  • Learn how to embed customer-centric mindset by establishing communities and champions across your organisation and maximise the impact of design thinking
  • Listen to design leaders as they highlight the key skills and steps you'll need to take to  flourish in a management role
  • Join a vibrant discussion on ethics and sustainability and learn how to apply design thinking methodologies to critical broader business challenges
