We are living in extraordinary times. The COVID-19 crisis has exposed where the systems are broken, revealed our blind spots and challenged our thinking and assumptions.

As we are struggling to adapt, opportunities are emerging for businesses and societies to rethink, reimagine and reinvent by understanding human needs and bringing back the human perspective. Design matters more than ever.

KODW 2020 gathers forward-thinking designers, business leaders, innovators and trend forecasters to share evolving thoughts and critically relevant insights in these times of uncertainty and ambiguity. Together, we will explore the unprecedented challenges and opportunities facing business and industry, and how to navigate the ‘new normal’ in the post-pandemic world.
