Tickets are still available for the fantastic Brand New Conference, coming to Chicago September 25–26, to see VSA Partners’ Client Engagement Lead Sol Sender present a session called “Working with the Corporate Parent: Design, Agility and Bridge Building.” Sender replaces Client Engagement Lead Jamie Koval, who had to withdraw from the conference due to scheduling conflicts. Other presenters and speakers include Justin Ahrens, Jim Coudal, Bob Faust, Jonathan Lee of Google UXA, writer/publisher Adrian Shaughnessy and many more.
Sender will share lessons and experiences from throughout his career, particularly in his creation of the Obama ’08 identity and as the Global Engagement Lead for IBM. “I’ve been fortunate to work with many corporations who task VSA with driving value down through their organizations,” said Sender. “Whether that’s through grassroots branding, driving new working methods, championing lean and agile methods, training and co-staffing within an organization, demonstrating the value of design through every channel, designing and facilitating interactions within organizations and between partner agencies—there are many stories this audience will gain knowledge from.”
