Leading as an Introvert

Meghan D'Mello RGD

About this video


Many designers are introverts and/or have a preference for staying behind-the-scenes. But eventually, every designer is asked to run meetings, conduct training or lead on creative pitches. Join Meghan as she presents tactics to propel you out from behind your computer screen to the front of the boardroom (or virtual screen) by embracing your existing strengths. Instead of trying to overcome introversion, you'll learn to embrace it and lead with empathy, creativity and authenticity.

Meghan specializes in print design, illustration and motion. While she started her career on the agency side, her passion for international development, education and gender equality helped her land roles as an in-house designer for global charities, including UNICEF & Plan International. For the past 10+ years, she has prioritized working with socially-conscious businesses, not-for-profits and organizations that advance human rights – using design to bring about positive change in Canada and communities around the world. Meghan started volunteering with the RGD in 2020 and currently acts as Secretary on RGD’s Events Committee.
