A Seat At the Table

You might have heard discussions around designers having a seat at the table. I, as the co-founder and lead designer at Parasut, have been sitting at its board since our first customer. Now, after 5 years we have more then ten thousand customers and a team of 55.

Join me for a conversation on how design can be an integral part of a business; thriving from being a part of the strategy and contributing to the smallest possible detail in designing a product, a service, and eventually an organization.
