Designing Innovation

20140325 NIDA Designing Innovation 046

On the 25th March NIDA held the event, Designing Innovation. By inviting representatives of business, education and the public sector, the Northern Ireland Design Alliance aimed to facilitate the debate on how design and creative thinking can help grow our innovation culture.

The keynote speaker for the day, Lee Sankey, Design Director of Innovation and Customer Experience at Barclays Bank, argued that designers bring real value to business when they are allowed to implement their skills in all aspects of a company.  See Lee’s argument in full below.
