How can we align our own ethics and purpose with practical business and communication skills to create successful endeavors?
Last year the Conway School tried something new: a two-day summer survey course to create a space for graduates and professionals to integrate their design education background and individual passion for change with business development strategies. The response from attendees was very positive – here is some of the feedback we heard from 2016 participants:
“Conversational. Professional yet informal. Accessible.”
“Many people who care about sustainability feel it’s somehow anti-business, and in hindsight, many of my classmates and peers shared that view with me. Now I realize that is far from true. I wish this workshop had been available when I was starting out, and that somebody had dragged me to it!”
“Had good balance of bigger and smaller business owner perspectives.”
“The two-day workshop is a good amount of time.”
This year Wendi Goldsmith ’90 and board member Mitch Anthony are offering this two-day course at the Conway Campus. This event is open to the public – we hope you can join us for a working retreat away from the distractions of the daily grind at the beautiful wooded design studios of the Conway School’s rural campus. The days run from 9-5, lunch and snacks are included.
Wednesday, June 28 & Thursday, June, 29, 2017
