Most designers set out to create great design work and somewhere along the way they get asked to manage other designers. Whether you have management experience or not this is a huge sea change in your career. Join us for this Design//Work panel discussion aimed at designers who have already, or hope to in future, move into roles involving management of people, projects and budgets.

Topics include:

- Making the change from individual contributor to manager - Do great designers make great managers? - Finding and hiring the right designers for your team - Inspiring vs cracking the whip: where is the right balance? - Producing great design while looking after the team
