In this fun, fast-paced, hands-on workshop, you’ll learn the Design Sprint directly from its inventor and get to experience what it's like to work in an early stage Silicon Valley startup — at least for one day! Jake will rapidly lead you through a simulated Design Sprint, teaching you how to create a map, sketch solutions, and use structured decision making.

Mike Monteiro

Like every other human being on the planet we share, designers are part of the social contract. By choosing to be a designer you are choosing to affect the people who come in contact with your work. Learn how to tell if your work will hurt or help those people and how to measure social impact alongside shareholder value.

In 2015 Mike Monteiro taught us how to present our work with confidence. In 2017 he taught us how to fight fascism. Now – after writing one of the most important books on design in the 21st century – Mike Monteiro returns to From Business to Buttons. He is not done yelling at you. Mike is the co-founder and design director of Mule Design. He prefers that designers have strong spines. He believes workers have a right to unionize and a responsibility to improve society. He's done with your excuses.

Peter Merholz

As the move to establish in-house design teams accelerates, it turns out there’s very little common wisdom on what makes for a successful design organization. In this workshop, Peter Merholz draws from his groundbreaking book Org Design for Design Orgs to shine a light on the unsung activities of actually running a design team, the organizational and operational challenges and considerations, and what works and what doesn’t.

In this workshop Indi will teach you empathic listening skills and how to build self-awareness and humility into the tools you need both as a foundation for understanding users, and to forge strong collaborative relationships with your peers, direct reports, managers, and leadership. She will also introduce the concept of problem space research, and how listening deeply to people without the lens of your product will provide the foundation for your product to grow.
