SDN UK 2012 – 2013
Sarah Ronald and Phil Goad brought the founding group together after recognising there was no ‘formal’ voice for Service Design, or community to go to, despite a thriving skillset and number of leading companies working in the space. Each of the founding members were active and passionate in the field of Service Design, and had a strong desire to connect people working across the design and innovation sector: David Singh (ROYAL LONDON), Neil Collman (NILE), Christina Lindeberg (GSA) and Kate Dowling (IRISS) were all members of the global network and approached to become founding members of the SDN UK Chapter.
The founding committee launched the SDN UK Chapter with two successful events in Glasgow and London. Following this they submitted a bid to host the 2013 SDN Global Conference.
