Join SEGD's Management + Leadership Virtual Summit, Wednesday, March 24, and Thursday, March 25 2021. Taking a hard look at the cultural and workplace shifts over the last year, we’ll examine proven examples of creative leaders who successfully transformed their business and leadership approach to meet the changing needs of their team and clients.
An all-female lineup of speakers, known for their visionary leadership, will share their unique perspectives and experiences with honest conversations about how they are adapting to virtual life and what impact this new way of working will have as we look towards the future. They will share actionable insights and the new strategies and tools they developed to lead with empathy while building new revenue streams and relationships forged in collaboration.
Developed for design business executives, studio principals, emerging professionals, and self-employed creatives, this two-day event offers sessions and dialogue aimed at helping designers and business people build a toolkit that includes financial strategy, best practice, social equity, emotional intelligence, management, and marketing.
M+L 2021 will feature successful design leaders and clients, finance experts, visionary creative change makers who focus on the current business trends, cultural shifts, employment realities, and technological advances that will help firms lead with resiliency and build new revenue strategies.
