What does it take to successfully manage the business of design? A panel of industry leaders discuss the value of design and how to use your creativity strategically.

What does it mean to be a creative thinker? How do you build engagement and relationships to lead people, communities and partners?

Hear it from the experts and gain an insight into how skilled leaders use design thinking to improve the competitive advantage of businesses.
A Q&A session and networking drinks will be included after the panel discussion. RMIT academic staff will also be available to talk about your career and future study options, so make sure you stay for a chat.

“Evolution to Revolution – Traditional definitions of what it means to be ‘a designer’ are changing. As boundaries blur, we can either view this as a problem or an opportunity. In my opinion … it’s an extraordinary opportunity! Join me as we explore how the profession is being reframed as an object of design.”
