For the first time in Ireland, we’re bringing together thought leaders and subject matter experts to lead business-focused conversations and learning on the challenges of managing talent in creative environments, building a winning culture and running a modern design practice profitably.


We’ll take a deep dive into the topics that pose the greatest challenges for design and creative business owners, directors, partners and managers who lead design teams and run successful creative studios.

Every day design leaders are faced with challenges - from winning new projects and getting work delivered to developing and keeping the best people. The trend for co-creation and partnerships continues, with the role of design being increasingly blurred, and no longer restricted to designers.  

In keynote sessions, executive speakers from the US, Canada, and Europe will discuss the challenges and opportunities of defining and honing your own leadership style to aligning talent and culture in dynamic design and creative environments with a profitable business strategy. Facilitated panel discussions will allow for interaction and collaboration.  

An unmissable opportunity to build your network, share ideas and learn up to date industry trends and best practice.  



We’re thrilled to announce our international speakers.
