Idean Holiday Party with special guest Matt Cutler from Cisco

Come celebrate the holiday season, and hear how Cisco is evolving with empathy

This holiday season, we’re excited to welcome Matt Cutler, Chair of the Cisco Founders Forum and Cisco Design Thinking Lead, who is tackling the challenge of establishing a better way to solve business problems.

In this fireside chat, he’ll share his experience kick-starting Cisco’s new Design Thinking initiative—a global effort to put users front and center to transform Cisco’s business practices—and the insights he’s gained along the way.

After the keynote presentation, please join us for a Holiday Happy Hour at the Idean Studio, with holiday drinks and tasty, Nordic hors d’oeuvres! The party will be on from 7pm–10pm.

We look forward to seeing you!
