November was another great month for DesignSpeak, as we launched a new discussion series for design professionals, LeaderSpeak! We plan to hold these every other month with rotating speakers and topics.
Our first topic on Marketing & Branding was a great success! We were very fortunate to have such talented people for our first panelist lineup. We really appreciated David, Nate, Araceli and Tom for being so open and offering insight into their marketing strategies. Also, a huge thank you to Global Furniture for hosting the event with us! Their showroom looked fabulous and turned out to be a great source for seating our crowd!
Meet our panelists:
From my perspective, the key points to take from the event were these:
– Be authentic and real in your professional dealings.
– Ask and you never know what doors may open for you.
– It really is about who you know; building relationships is more important than ever.
– Find a niche that plays to your strengths and core values.
We hope you enjoyed the event and we’re looking forward to many more intriquing discussions in 2012!
