Escape to a Desert Hideaway to Tackle Tough Challenges

Eager to hone your leadership skills, while immersed in rugged beauty and taking some time for yourself? Join us at Design Leadership Camp Palm Springs. This January, we’re headed to the Ace Hotel & Swim Club, a 1960s-era hotel turned into a bohemian resort.

Wake up each morning to beautiful views, wander over to breakfast and spend the day talking shop with people who understand your same challenges. Get the answers you need during moderated discussions, unscripted conversations and impromptu moments engaged in fun activities.

Ace Hotel & Swim Club, Palm Springs


“As we grow into our roles managing and leading people, projects and programs, we find ourselves giving a lot of feedback to our teams, but not getting much insight into how we might improve our own performance. Design Leadership Camp is a rare opportunity to gain insights from like-minded leaders. Despite the different industries and range of experience, we shared a remarkably similar set of challenges. Stepping away from my day-to-day and getting this chance to interact with other design leaders was inspiring.”

— Margaret Lee, Director, UX Community & Culture, Google
