With a life mission of creating great experiences one of the best ways Dave can help others is by providing guidance on careers. We spend about 1/3 of our lives working so we better get everything we can out of it. Designers are a fortunate group of people who can gain personal satisfaction through craft, and affect greater change in their environments. This talk takes a broad look at creating a “successful” career ranging from happiness and job satisfaction, to charting career trajectory and communicating business goals while navigating client feedback. With design, business and client management advice taken from great design thinkers (Paula Scher, Simon Sinek, Scott Belsky, David Baker and Stefan Sagmeister) Dave will provide an overview of how to be the best at every aspect of crafting your design career.
