Speakers

Thanks to our tireless Program Partners, HOW Design Live consistently recruits the industry’s highest-rated speakers—as well as intriguing new talent and compelling voices from outside the design world.

See the complete 2017 speaker line-up here.

Every year we’re tasked with topping what we’ve just produced the year before. How do we do that? We research and evaluate hundreds of potential speakers. Immediately after the conference ends, we start with a clean slate, planning and evaluating every aspect of the conference. We gather all our data, factor in the anecdotal feedback and look at industry trends to decide what type of conference you want us to produce.

The HOW Design Live team has an obligation and a responsibility to our attendees to deliver the best possible conference experience. Attending a conference is a big investment of time and money and we need to make sure we not only meet, but exceed all expectations.
