Our event theme was Impact. Innovation. Insight. Our goal was to inspire meaningful change, creative solutions, and valuable learning. Our speakers included a few faculty members from Western, a couple of alumni, two students from a peer institution and some industry experts as well. One of our speakers was international award-winning designer Andrew Lewis - not only did he deliver a really great talk he also designed a commemorative poster that we gave to each attendee as well as our speakers. The design elements from this poster were also worked into the stage design/ decor.
