Presentation description
A seat at the table: New horizons for design
Many designers feel that they add more value than they get credit for and too often design is marginalized as a trade art. How can we win a seat at the main table for design? Tony Golsby-Smith, design strategist and advisor to the Australian Tax office, will explain how. He attacks the issue from two angles: first, by building a larger theory for how design is the unwitting custodian of a new style of thinking that the world is thirsting for; second, by explaining how he has taken design into broad, new applications, including the redesign of organizational planning systems into strategic conversations.
