Theme: Design For Change
February 23rd, 2013
About this event
“To create a memorable design you need to start with a thought that’s worth remembering.” - Thomas Mann, author, Nobel laureate, philanthropist.
“Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.” - Jim Rohn, entrepreneur, author, motivational speaker.
“Great stories happen to people who can tell them.” - Ira Glass, radio personality, producer, writer.
Everything we see around us has a design behind it. It does not take genius to design something. A design is not a product of chance. It is more often a product of perseverance, of imagination, of the desire to excel, the desire to exceed what cannot be seemingly scaled. The best of these designs leave footprints. They change the lives of those they touch.
We believe that every single story is born to a storyteller. And we would like to bring together some of these storytellers on a common stage and let each one of them share their story, about how their design brought a change, with the world.
