HS Design Operations events provide me with the opportunity to connect with other colleagues in the industry and share learnings to help each other strive to be the most efficient and supportive teams we can be.

HS Design Operations events are a new and unique format for meeting peers and exchanging about current developments in the industry - as well as a great way to grow the community. Enjoyed it a lot and looking forward to the next conference.
