When do I know enough to just go do?

Being an entrepreneur is not about ‘the sure thing’; it’s about knowing when to be bold and when to revise and when to retreat. And, it’s about getting the basics right when it comes to values, organisation, operations and structure. You won’t learn all it takes to be successful in this presentation, but you will gain insight into what is essential for every new business, where you can easily become distracted and how focus and ongoing prioritisation can help you grow.

Shipping good design when everything's on fire

Finding the right answer is what good designers do best, but sometimes a good design isn't enough. Often you need to be a salesman, a negotiator, a mediator and psychologist. The soft skills of communication run more than pixel deep. How can we find a way to fight for good work, especially when confrontation in a fast moving company is hard? In finding the answer, we can learn to be not only better designers, but more valued in our organisations.
