Event description

Description

Konversations is a free monthly discussion with our principal and creative director, Tobias Rose, and special guests on a variety of topics. From entrepreneurship to digital strategy and everything creative and technical in between, we will discuss a different subject during each Konversation.

This month, we're going to talk about how to talk to a designer (or other creatives). Designers are an interesting bunch. They’re always looking around, collecting things and sitting in dark corners. The same could be said about Pennywise in the movie IT, but I digress… Designers are also the talented few that can make the intangible touchable. They turn an idea into something you can see and touch. So, what’s the secret sauce to getting what you need out of these beautiful, eccentric creatures? We’re hoping Denise Haviland of Duke University can talk us through it.

Denise Haviland is the Associate Dean of Marketing and Communications at the Duke University Nicholas School of the Environment. She came to Duke University 16 years ago, following a 17-year career in branding and marketing. As an award-winning producer, creative director and project manager, Denise worked in Chicago and Seattle independently and with agencies leading projects for multinational corporations like Microsoft, Proctor & Gamble, Wells Fargo, Johnson Controls, Baxter Healthcare, AEI Music International and Alcoa Steel.

If you’re interested in networking, be sure to arrive at 6:30pm. The hour-long discussion will begin at 7pm. Konversations are open to the public, but a ticket is required for entry. Each discussion is filmed and published to our YouTube channel.
