To inspire and cultivate product design and innovation in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Capital One hosted a free summit on October 29, 2018, featuring a lineup of industry thought leaders and local influencers that included Jake Knapp, author of New York Times’ Best Seller Sprint, Christina Wodtke, author of Radical Focus, and me!

While I helped provide general direction and guidance for the conference, my peer, Stephen Anderson, was responsible for the much of the design lineup.

Launch DFW interviewed me during the event. Below is an excerpt from that interview.

“The event has been great in fostering much needed conversations, which hopefully turn into informal meetups. When it comes to recruiting for design in DFW, it’s not always easy, but I don’t think it’s any different than with other major cities. We all struggle with the same challenges. Yes, Capital One is recognized as a leader in the industry, but we still believe it’s important to get out in the community and give back. Beyond is one of the ways we do that. “
