by Louise Marsland’s (@Louise_Marsland) I’ve been attending Design Indaba conferences for eight years and while the speakers and the disciplines differ every year, there are always a couple of speakers that completely blow you away, either in their wonderful delivery, content or total inspiration.
The one thing I always take away with me is hope for the future. For my children, for our industry, for our planet and our very humanity.
The speakers at Design Indaba are carefully chosen to challenge conventional thinking, to push boundaries, to inspire.
I always tell people going for their first Indaba not to judge too quickly, to listen to speakers in fields that are not their own, to keep an open mind, not to make too many meetings at or outside the Indaba, but to immerse themselves in the experience. It will change the way you think about your own business and industry.
These are my best Design Indaba moments of 2013, the speakers who challenged me and inspired me…
