How could we help in designing better companies? For the past 20 years Jeremiah has worked for companies such as Nokia, Marimekko, Iittala and Arabia. He used to think that the work was about designing better brands, but recently came to the realization that it's about designing better companies. Learn what you can do to help design the way a company runs, shape the offering, and design the teams and the interaction between interdependent people. Jeremiah will be joined by two guests: Helmi Saksala who works with new forms of storytelling and communication, and Ville Tikka who is the CEO of Poem, a top tier consultancy that uses social sciences to help companies create real value.

You are welcome to engage in the discussion and participate with other creative professionals on what we as the creative industry can do to help design better companies. There is so much that can already be addressed. Let's make it happen!
