Love from the Community

We’re excited to host the inaugural class for this event. Here’s what alumni had to say about previous design leadership events:


“I think I'll look back a few years from now and see how DLC was a pivot in my focus, career and energy. So many new friends and ideas have their genesis at that camp.”

— Scott Welliver, Design Manager, Experience Design, Comcast


“What a great event! Connecting with peers across so many industries to discuss the mutual challenges that Design faces every day was inspiring and validating. The intimate nature of a small event like this left me feeling like I have a new support network I can bounce ideas off and ask for advice.”

— Shelley Armstrong, Senior Director, Customer Experience & User Interface Design, NCR


“There is no other venue that brings top UX leadership together to discuss and debate the challenges they face on a daily basis. It's therapy and peer-mentorship rolled all into one!”

— Russ Wilson, Director, Cloud UX, Google


“Very inspiring and motivating to discuss with design leaders from various industries about similar questions or challenges that we face.”

— Caroline Law, Design Manager, Data Science | Head of Studio, IBM Analytics Design, SF, IBM
