The Human-Centered Design Summit 2017

We are very proud to announce the second edition of the ‘Human-Centered Design Summit’ on the 12th of October 2017 with internationally acclaimed keynote speakers.

The end-user or customer is a crucial stakeholder in your innovation process, as they are the ones eventually using your solutions. This is why they should be given a central role, because if you ignore your customer, they will ignore you and what you're offering.

This is why Human-Centered Design, or the action of designing solutions with the end-user at heart, is a sustainable, faster, and more cost-effective approach to innovation.

We know this to be true from our 10 years of experience. But don’t just take our word for it, come and join us and listen to the keynote speakers we have carefully brought together.
