Presentation


Overview

For most senior agency and brand leaders, the more senior you get in your career, the less hands-on you are. Work & Co designer/partner Casey Sheehan proves that it’s possible to be a manager while also actively remaining tied to the work. Designers who keep designing –even once they are promoted into the leadership ranks, and become company owners– are not only happier in their careers, but also better mentors, and help generate more stronger, smarter work that clients love. In this session attendees will learn how to chart out a career path that never promotes them out of what they love doing what the most.

Objective
