What place do the concepts of Design and Design Thinking have in our lives?

Have you ever wondered the kind of impact Design Thinking can have on your life and career? That question will be explored during a presentation by our guest speaker Bill Bernahl, the V.P. of Digital Marketing for Herman Miller. We will be convening at Herman Miller, a company famous for its Aeron chair. The company discovered the beauty and simplicity of human-centered design in the early 1930's when it discovered that furniture designs needed to serve the needs of the people—while also discovering the value of constant iterations and prototyping.
