For over two decades, PARK Retreats have brought together Design Leaders from a diverse range of industries to focus on shared challenges and opportunities in design leadership. With 16 topics explored to date, from Integrated Design to Open Innovation, and from Design Outsourcing to Customer Experience Management, attendees have gained valuable insight whilst helping to set the cross-industry agenda for Design Leadership.

For those working in large organisations with complex structures and politics, PARK Retreats offer a rare opportunity to step away from the daily grind and collaborate with like-minded individuals who understand the challenges you face. With subject matter experts on hand to facilitate learning and discussion, attendees can expect to accelerate their growth and make lasting connections.

Attendees to a PARK Retreat usually hold a senior design leadership role within a medium or large organisation, with past representation including Design Directors, VPs, and CDOs from renowned companies such as Dassault Systemes, 3M, Airbus, Decathlon, Volkswagen, Unilever, MARS, Heineken, Whirlpool and Toyota.

"There are some truly professional design leaders out there. But how do you meet them? How can you have real in depth sharing of experiences? When can you mirror your design leadership issues and ideas with people who understand you immediately? The PARK Retreats provide that unique opportunity."

- Mark Van Iterson, Heineken
