Matt holds strong opinions about how good design can help organisations and believes design can offer businesses so much more. His new year's resolution for 2016 was to share his opinions more widely, hopefully influencing people to take design more seriously. As a result of this resolution, Matt is commenting via his blog and presenting at this session!
