Design Outlook Design Leadership – Melbourne 2024

Another awesome day at Design Outlook Design Leadership at the Cargo Hall, South Wharf in Melbourne last week. As a room full of design leaders, we explored three topics. Each started with a short presentation and was followed by roundtable discussions.

Andrew Lamont kicked off with The New Design Leader, followed by Navigating Applied AI with Tim Dawson… and Pina Starchenko brought it home with Design’s Bright Future. Of course, we also had lunch and closed with drinks and plenty of networking.

Mickey Rummery did a great job again as MC, and each of the nine tables had a host which included David Bradford, Elaine Tan, Iva Halacheva, Kris Washusen, and Sammi Hinds. I was also one of the hosts and it was great to meet a new group of leaders as everyone rotated for each topic. So many rich conversations… and new connections made.

I’m looking forward to staying in touch with everyone and catching up again at Design Outlook 24: High Fidelity in June.
