Debbie Millman is working with the HOW Design Live team for the third year to help shape the conference and enrich its content. For the handful of you who may not know, Ms. Millman is CMO of Sterling Brands, Chair of SVA’s Masters of Branding, and Host of the Design Matters podcast. As usual, she has come up with fascinating presentations including this year’s expanded Vision & Leadership program that, she says, “recognizes design’s transformative power both in business and in our everyday lives.”
Of particular note, she has created the opportunity to hear from exceptional women in design and culture — women like Tina Essmaker of the print and online magazine The Great Discontent; Lynda Weinman, the entrepreneur behind the successful training resource for designers Lynda.com; and Tiffany Shlain, who early on recognized the power of the internet and founded the Webby Awards before going on to a career as an Emmy-nominated filmmaker and technology expert. The HOW event, including the Vision & Leadership program, takes place in Atlanta May 19-23; early registration is open until February 5.
