We all go to a lot of conferences these days but one you should not miss is conference put on by Patrick Whitney at the IIT Institute of Design in Chicago in May. Whitney puts on the most sophisticated, cutting edge conversations about design strategy and innovation that you’ll find anywhere.
Speakers include AG Lafley from P&G, Bill Buxton from Microsoft, Claudi Kotchka, P&G, Matt Mason, Wedia, John Seeley Brown, Jerry Michalski, and others. If you don’t already know most of these names, all the more reason to go to. I’ll be there as well to listen and learn.
