Thanks to friends at Arts Thread, I have been headhunted to take part in a panel discussion at international inspiration company PSFK (the name I presume is taken from letters of Piers Fawkes’ name, the CEO).
I’m using the above images for the powerpoint that they are putting on during our discussion.
Tickets to the conference are £300 so I would not be able to go to it if I wasn’t speaking in it. I’m really looking forward to hearing the other speakers and meeting people at the drinks reception the evening before – I’m barely even thinking about what I’m going to say!
Our panel is made of young graduates and they want to find out what we find inspiring and our ways of working. From our initial conversations I reckon we’re likely to talk about interaction with people and doing something for communities. I’m much more interested in people than form of design.
Here’s some text about the conference via PSFK:
A GATHERING OF AGENDA SETTERS
Each year, ideas site PSFK.com brings its celebration of creativity and talent to London in the form of a day-long conference. Speakers come from well-known companies like Jaguar, emerging mega-brands like Rapha and the start-up community. Topics covered include brand storytelling in the social age, design at the intersection of technology, learning and the virtual classroom, and sustainability in the era of big data.
PSFK CONFERENCE LONDON promises to be an inspirational day for everyone across industries and job role. Speakers include:
IDEAS TO INSPIRE CREATIVE THINKING
The PSFK audience is made up of creative professionals-designers, advertisers, artists and entrepreneurs that are faced each day with challenging problems requiring innovative solutions.
PSFK conferences expose this audience to ideas that are literally and laterally related to these complex challenges, that together form the building blocks innovation is made of. Attendees walk away with tools and connections to make meaningful change.
I’m very excited, please let me know if you’re coming or if you would like to hear what happened if you can’t make it.
