Joining us for the conversation will be design leaders from Canary, Foursquare, Google Play Music, Square and ustwo, and of course, an impressive audience to further the dialogue.
We’ll have plenty of drinks, DJ, and incredible views of the East River and Upper New York Bay from ustwo’s new digs in FiDi.
We'll also be helping top talent meet top companies at the event through our dd:TALENT initiative Powered by The Execu|Search Group and the opportunity to meet Justworks, the simplest and most intuitive way to take care of your team.
