Scaling for Impact: Growing your In-house Design Team


The rise of in-house Design Teams is being seen all around the world – with varying degrees of success.

Martin will discuss how to approach scaling Design within an organisation for maximum impact, why that doesn’t always mean a larger team and what changes to your skillset will be required to be truly successful.
Talking through how you structure the team, how they engage within the business, the hard choices you will have to be willing to make – whether you are just starting on this journey or looking to make the next jump in impact – his hope is that you will take away some key insights into what you can best do next to amplify the awesomeness in your Design team for maximum impact.

Date: Friday, October 23rd
