Do you want to become a successful leader in a fast-paced and rapidly changing work environment? Join us for an interactive workshop on Design Thinking with Christopher Ireland, the coauthor of "Rise of the DEO". Here you will learn a unique perspective on leadership and gain the innovative strategies and skills you need to unleash your inner leader.
Workshop Leader: Christopher Ireland
Christopher Ireland worked for 20 years growing and developing Cheskin, a consultancy focused on product and market design innovation. Under her leadership as CEO, the company expanded into global markets, opened four offices, completed two successful mergers and gained a reputation for top quality performance serving a range of high growth clients including Microsoft, Intel, HP, Motorola, Pepsi and more. Christopher and her partners successfully sold Cheskin late in 2007.
Ms. Ireland has an M.B.A. from the Andersen School of Management (UCLA). She currently teaches graduate design students at California College of the Arts in San Francisco and Continuing Studies students at Stanford University. In 2013, she co-authored Rise of the DEO, (New Riders Press) a book examining contemporary leadership traits.
