Culture shapes values. Values determine the future.
"Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future". Robert L Peters
What a fantastic line to open this years conference with!
The Design Leaders Conference hosted so many information, insightful, inspiring and outstanding speakers.
How can we create a maintained Flow state was a hot topic, alongside the housing shortage crisis, wellbeing, inclusion and the circular economy.
But the icing on the cake was meeting for the first time by chance my very first podcast guest 2 1/2 years ago Jennifer Doyle founder of Millbee!
We had never met in person before but she was the very same in real life, so amazing! We felt like old friends.
A perfect example of the power of these events.
It's the rekindling of the connections that lights the spark something new.
I also spent the day with new beautiful connection Clare Jordan a lecturer NCAD, designer and mentor.
Fantastic conversations enjoyed today with these wonderful women the start of many more to come.
A fabulous day all round, continuing to sow the seeds for our flourishing.
