We join the design industry with little experience, but we’re never destined to stay at that level.
In a personal yet practical talk, Gavin shares his take on professional progression and what that means from both an individual and managerial perspective.
As he says: “At the core of our professional progression is experience, but what does that really mean? In this talk, I’ll take you through multiple aspects of what you should be doing to progress and know when the timing is right to go for a more senior role.”
This talk will discuss seniority in design, professional and personal development, the skills needed in more senior roles and how to become a great manager and leader.
