On October 5th and 6th, I’ll not only be attending Service Design Days in Barcelona but will also be hosting the 2-day conference. It’s such an honour to have been asked, and am seriously looking forward to it. I’ll be on stage for the full two days, leading the conversation and welcoming and closing each talk.

As I’ll be there, I will be recording a really special episode with Andy Polaine from Fjord, John Thackara, Philosopher from Doors of Perception and Patrizia Marti, Professor from the University of Siena.

This episode is going to be a new type of episode though. It’s called a ‘Circle episode’ where we will record for 90 minutes. This episode will be split into 3 dedicated episodes. This will allow us to go deeper into the topics, something that many of our listeners have been calling out for.

The topic will be based on the conference theme, ‘Adapting to Change’ and we are looking for questions to be suggested by everyone, via this Trello Board. We LOVE to get as many types of questions and factor them into our episode plan, so feel free to contribute to the vertical dedicated to Service Design Days.

As this is a special episode, we also have a unique code for people to use to get discounts for the conference too.

(The code will provide a 15% discount on all ticket prices, and is valid until September 30, 2018 (or earlier, if the tickets are sold-out).

Hopefully see some of you there, and looking forward to connecting with the broader European Service Design community then!

Over and out,
