Let's Talk about Our Industry – Canadian Design Firm Check-In

Jennifer Taback RGD, and Claire Dawson RGD

About this video


As the cases of COVID-19 continue to rise across Canada and further restrictions are imposed, the ability of Canadian design firms to present their studios in a virtual tour has become increasingly difficult. So instead, for this opening session of the last day of DesignThinkers, we are inviting a panel of firm owners from across Canada to participate in a live discussion. Join us as we hear how they are coping in these challenging times; what’s working and what’s not; and most importantly, how they envision the next year shaking out and their attitudes for the future of their businesses and our industry.
