Mark Your Calendar: Design Conferences

The REACH Conference

November 13-14, 2017 at SVA

Accelerating Creative Leadership

REACH is the conference that will inspire and empower creative professionals by curating best-in-class leaders to share powerful knowledge that accelerates professional development.

The world is a more complex place than ever before and the role of the designer is transforming to a position of business innovation, strategic differentiation, critical problem solving, and corporate leadership.

REACH is an opportunity for creative leaders to have access to some of the most successful thinkers, doers and makers working today. Learn strategies, insights, and leadership skills to thrive in this challenging landscape. Understand why they are crucial and how to apply them to accelerate professional development.

“The role of a creative leader is not to have all the ideas; it’s to create a culture where everyone can have ideas and feel that they’re valued. So, it’s much more about creating climates. I think it’s a big shift for a lot of people.”  – Ken Robinson, Author/Speaker on leadership
