About the speaker
As founder of IDEO and the d.school at Stanford, David Kelley has spent his career building innovative cultures that expand the role of design in the world. By applying a groundbreaking methodology called design thinking, IDEO has worked on thousands of products, services, and organizations that have had a lasting impact, from the first Apple mouse to homes for wounded veterans to an entire school system in Peru.
In 1978, David co-founded the design firm that ultimately became IDEO. Today, he serves as chair of IDEO and is the Donald W. Whittier Professor at Stanford, where he has taught for more than 30 years.
What matters most to him is unlocking the creative confidence of people and organizations so they can innovate routinely.
