Cheat, Borrow, Steal: How to Build and Scale a Successful Design Practice

Speaker: Colin Budd

Description

Building a sustainable, scalable, and successful design practice is no easy feat. In this talk, learn the real techniques, tricks, and best-in-class methods for forming a true design practice that organically grows and transforms your business. Anecdotes and insights from in-field learnings that helped countless companies (from startups to Fortune 500s) build and grow their own sustainable design cultures will ensure that everyone – no matter their role/industry/team/company or perceived barriers – is able to bring the same transformative practices into their own worlds. You may have to cheat, borrow, steal, but that’s all part of the game!

About the Speaker

With a restless drive to innovate powered by an interdisciplinary background in design, technology, business, and psychology, Colin focuses on creating forward-thinking solutions across emerging domains (spanning AI, IoT, 5G, Edge, Mixed Reality, Blockchain, and beyond) which seek to solve the often unseen, higher-level problems latent in our world and the technologies, platforms, and services we use everyday. 

As a Digital Advisor with Microsoft, Colin has the immense pleasure of assisting enterprise customers in unlocking new value by transforming their offerings, teams, cultures, and industries through a human-centric focus, mindset toward what could be, and passion for empowering others to do the right thing – not just the easy thing.

A Cornell University graduate with degrees in Information Science and Fine Arts, Colin is an emerging thought leader in the spaces of Human-Centered Practices and Creative Strategy. He holds a number of patents within these spaces and is often found deeply exploring, tinkering with, and speaking/writing on these topics.
