Element Talks tames monsters like finances, negotiations or copyright. The speakers share their successes and failures, show the backstage of the designer's profession, how they work, how they cooperate and how they stay designers without loosing their souls.
You'll meet other designers and speakers during the networking sessions, e.g. Speed Dates or Discussion Tables. It's a great chance to make new business relations, friendships or to exchange experiences.
You can also meet new people during one of many workshops we have prepared for you.
