Must-attend event for industrial designers, PD+I is pleased to welcome Neysan Zölzer to its exciting lineup of speakers for 2016.
Neysan is a partner at Mensch, an innovation agency which employs human-centred, entrepreneurial, and collaborative approaches to design products, services, and organisations in emerging and frontier markets. He has designed for the governments of Rwanda and Malawi, Cambodian NGOs, and USAID, NASA, the World Bank, and TED.
On his speaker role at this year’s conference, Neysan explains: “Design’s vast potential to contribute to human prosperity remains largely untapped — PD+I is bound to be an exciting forum to explore ground-breaking and meaningful innovations.”
For his keynote, Neysan discusses: How Design can contribute to the Prosperity of Nations. It is his belief that design offers a compelling approach for tackling socio-economic complexity, yet its potential remains largely untapped. So, how can we employ collaboration, empathy, iteration, and creativity to design meaningful products and services that contribute to the development and prosperity of nations?
Delegates of the 2016 PD+I conference will be lucky enough to hear first-hand examples through insights into Neysan’s work innovating in the Global South.
NEYSAN’S PRESENTATION WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE MORNING OF DAY ONE – 18TH MAY 2016 @ PD+I 2016. http://conference.pdesigni.com/
