Meeting of the minds
The Design Assemblage continues into 2020 with its innovative talks programme
TDA has created a big buzz in the design community thanks to its array of hugely popular expert lectures, workshops and masterclasses which are open to the public and free of charge.
In April, renowned Munich based design expert John Wai Lam will be the international guest at The Design Assemblage (TDA). With more than 15 years of working experience and various global assignments as a business and design consultant, Wai Lam is a member of the global client collaboration team at Steelcase supporting multi-national accounts in pursuing their Future of Work vision.
With a design management qualification from Parsons in New York; a diploma in business administration and intercultural communication from the University of Konstanz in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, and a master’s degree in design strategy from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University’s School of Design, he’s an authority on strategy and design. “I strongly believe that design, intercultural empathy and a humanistic approach will determine a sustainable economic value,” he says.
Wai Lam will be discussing Global Design Thinking on Tuesday 7 April at 11am at The Design Assemblage, 196 Oxford Road in Illovo.
Details of further April talks and workshops will be announced shortly. Reserve your free seat at thedesignassemblage.com
