Keynote: Designing Your Business:

Staying Competitive and Innovative in Changing Times

We are all experiencing the impact of globalization and digitization in our work life and in our private life. As business people, we are now competing with large and small companies half way around the world yet we also have the opportunity to do the same.

The Designing Your Business Keynote will share strategies and stories to help give your businesses and organizations get an advantage by using design to get closer to your customers than your competitors.

This approach has worked with startup founders and social entrepreneurs in Africa to help them innovate, by using their local knowledge to uncover key pain points that helped their business grow. There is a huge opportunity in Asia and Africa and design can help you unlock your business potential while providing significant positive changes to people’s daily lives.
