Members Invited to “Bring a Client” to DesignThinkers 2016

Client passes for RGD and Provisional RGD's registered for this year's DesignThinkers Conference are now available!


One of the benefits of being a designated Member of RGD is the opportunity to invite clients (internal or external) to sessions. This is an opportunity to build your relationship with past and existing clients, enhance their understanding of best practices for design and marketing and raise their awareness of your professional designation and connection to RGD.


RGDs and Provisional RGDs registered for DesignThinkers 2016 are welcome to bring one client to any three strategy sessions or three clients each to one session. Additional sessions for clients may also be purchased at a cost of $35 each. (Please note this opportunity does not apply to colleagues, employees or prospects.)
