Event description: 

The event starts at 6:30 PM Ottawa time.

Change signifies movement and people are usually resistant to movement resulting in change because they may not always know what a better future state looks like, be able to articulate it or even know how to get there. People may also think there is no great motivation to change as it's just too hard to do. Daniel Szuc will make us think about the role of the Designer to help with change.


This presentation will help us find the answers and look at:
- How to identify the culture you work in
- Creating environments for people do their best work
- Getting people from different parts of a business to work together
- Ensuring that all relevant data points (design, engineering, marketing) are being heard towards a common product & service goal
- Being an agent for change towards better products and a better world

Advance registration is $5. Tickets at the door are $10. To RSVP, go to http://ixdaott3.eventbrite.com
