About the session

Making the move from being one of the team, to design leadership can be daunting.

What kind of leader do you want to be? How do you do the best by people? And how do you actually make the move?

In this session, we’ll break down design leadership, explore pathways, and look at ways that you can develop your leadership, all with examples of where Llara has gone right, and wrong.

Come along to this talk if you’re an aspiring design leader (and maybe learn that you are already one!), you’re early in that journey, you want to understand more about potential pathways, or you just want to hear about some of the things someone else has done right, and wrong!

Participant takeaways:

  • Understand ways in which you can build your leadership skills
  • Learn from personal experience about some of the mistakes in becoming a design leader
  • Explore how you might replicate some of LLara’s wins on a squiggly career path.
