Six years ago, Tina, now the Head of Design at Smartabase, started as the first product designer in a company of 15 people. Since then, she has grown the design team and transformed the quality, value and culture of product design at Smartabase, now an organisation with 150 employees.

In this talk, Tina will be pulling back the curtains and sharing honestly about the triumphs and tribulations of design leadership, especially in a fast-moving, scale-up environment. A reflection on self-confidence and overcoming Imposter Syndrome, this talk is for anyone who's ever been curious about the opportunities, challenges and struggles of a design leader.

Join us for learning, networking, or hanging out with amazing designers!
As usual, we will have a Meet&Greet session for people looking for jobs and companies looking to hire to connect. Upon arrival at our meetup, we’re going to be handing out stickers to everyone.
These will be used to identify:

  • Looking for a Job
  • Looking to Hire
  • Here to party (meet a few people, learn a few things)

See you soon!
