What Ottawa 2019 attendees had to say about the Conference

"I loved networking with peers. Working alone for so many years in an environment where there are no other creatives gives you a skewed perception of yourself and value. I left the conference with a renewed excitement for what I do for a living, and better sense of what I want for the future."

"Thank you for acknowledging and supporting in-house design. I feel seen and heard, and for the first time, appreciated and supported."

"The focus on in-house design was really valuable - it was great to be in a room full of people who just “get” the issues. It was easy to demonstrate the relevance of this conference to my employer and get their support on attending."

"I liked the opportunity to meet others in similar government and in-house design teams. It was great to be able to network and talk about the similar challenges we face. I loved the fact that I felt supported by this community and that all of the speakers were able to communicate our value."

"It hit all the main reasons I am a RGD member: staying connected to colleagues, continued education, add planning tools to my tool kit and get inspired!"
