It’s happening

Leading Design is coming to New York. After 3 years of our sell out conference in London we thought it was time to bring the goodness across the pond.

What is Leading Design?

Leading Design is a conference for people leading design teams, overseeing design direction, or instilling a culture of design within their organisations.

Listen to leaders from Lyft, Monzo, Pinterest, Google, Facebook and other design-led companies discuss the challenges of managing design, and becoming a better design leader.

Meet your peers

Design leadership can be hard, especially if you haven’t done it before. The best way to meet this challenge is through the support of your peers, so we’ve created plenty of opportunities for you to meet like-minded design leaders, swap war stories, and build relationships we hope will last the rest of your careers.

Experience a unique programme

Most conferences are focused on practitioners. We’re putting together a unique programme designed specifically to hone your leadership skills. We hope that by the end of this conference you will be able to tackle some of your most pressing challenges and become the most effective design leader possible.
