Wildflowering: Design Where Others Fear to Bloom
TALK: In my talk, I will encourage designers to look at the the transitional, liminal space between things as the most fertile place for inspired design. That place might be between two different styles, between differing goals of a husband and wife or two partners, or even the difficulties between a designer and their client. It also applies to different kinds of materials being used together, or modern and historic blends. This talk exhorts designers to look at places of seeming conflict as the opportunity to create something new that has the potential to exceed everyone's expectation. It is the most exciting way to design!
Speaker: Victoria Price
4:15 PM - 5:15 PM
The Magic Word:
Unlocking your Key to Connection, Communication, Collaboration, and Creativity
WORKSHOP: In my workshop, I will share how I came to recognize that each of us has a specific way of moving through the world and understanding it. Knowing what this way is in each of us, and learning how to recognize it in others allows us all to work together at the level of our greatest potential. In this workshop, I will share how I came to understand this and then teach others how to find this in themselves and develop it as a means of better communication, collaboration, connection, and creativity.
Both of these presentations adress communication, learning to listen, developing new ways to approach conflict, and learning to see. Both show that we have all the tools we need to be the best at we do right where we need them -- within ourselves! It is inspiration to know that all we have to do is nurture our own best qualities in order to succeed. I hope these talks will encourage the audience to feel more hopeful when they experience difficulties, and to create regular practices that will help them do this.

Boomer vs. Millennial
The Great Design Challenge!
The Baby Boomers and the Millennials are the largest demographic groups in history. There is an overabundance of data surrounding both segments. All of this information is difficult to understand and it is very confusion, to say the least. In this presentation we will break down a basic overview of both the Baby Boomer and Millennial demographic groups. How are they different and similar? Next, we will dive into consumer segments that will help us to form a deeper understanding of both of the demographic groups. We will discuss how to speak to these consumers. What is important to them? Lastly, we will review a few key trends that will be influencing the design decisions for both demographic groups in 2017 and 2018.
