I'm in Chicago, heading over to the IIT Institute of Design's Strategy Conference cocktail bash/welcome. I'm hoping to meet up with some of the speakers and participants, like Ben Tsiang, from China's SINA.com. Jim Wickes Director of Consumer Experience at Motorola, Rob Forbes, Design Within Reach, Roger Martin, Dean of the Rotman School of Management, the amazing designer, Clement Mok, Todd Tillemans from Unilever and Blaise Zerega, Managing Editor, Conde Nast Business Media. Hey Blaise, what's with the name?
I was at Patrick's last Design Strategy conference in Beijing and I'm still using the IP I picked up there. This one is gonna be terrific too.
