DFC Leadership Summit on the Business of Design

Leading New Organizational Constructs

November 8-9 | Boston, MA

Leadership is working through the challenges of organizational changes never encountered before. Come-n-Stay, Come-n-Go, Hybrid Workforce Models, Virtual Accountability Management, Work From Anywhere (WFA), and more are all turning tradition on its head. Tremendous opportunities to redefine the future of work, office, productivity, and talent value are presenting themselves. Will traditional leadership transform their mindset and methods to leap past the confusion to wholly new levels of success? Come explore with us all that’s possible in new effective leadership expressions.

The summit will begin at 1:30 p.m. on November 8 and end at 4:00 p.m. on November 9.

We will also recognize the 2021 Design Futures Council Emerging Leaders.
