7 ways to keep your Madrid service design state-of-mind

New year, new chances – but let's not forget about 2017 just yet! It has been a great year, filled with great examples of service design. We've seen a lot of these cases during SDGC17. Let's look back on the annual Service Design Global Conference and find out how you can keep your Madrid state-of-mind – until SDGC18.

Share your favorite presentation
If you’ve attended SDGC17, you have probably favorited one or two presentations. So why not share and discuss these presentations with your colleagues? All presentations can be found on our Slideshare channel. Feel free to show your colleagues what you liked best, and further discuss the topic.

Read up on #SDGC17
Even though SDGC17 has a very diverse program, you might have had to choose between the one or the other presentation. Or, maybe you missed the opinions of others about your favorite presentation. No worries – you can always grab a coffee and read up on everything that has been said on Twitter, by checking the hasthag #SDGC17.

Show your favorite shot
We already shared lots of SDGC17 photos – but did you share yours? We’d be thrilled to see your favorite pictures from the event (or the after parties)! Don’t forget to use our event hashtag, #SDGC17, when sharing on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. Looking forward to your best shots!

Choose a card and reach out
You’ve probably done some networking at SDGC17 and collected a whole lot of business cards. Don’t let them just be! Pick a card, reach out to that person and ask for their perspective on a project you’re currently working on. Offer yours on a service design topic you feel is important. And most importantly: stay connected.

Organize a post-SDGC17 event
Want to go a bit bigger? Organize a post-SDGC17 event! We have lots of material you can show your audience, such as videos from our speakers, the presentations and pictures. You can also submit the event on our webpage. Show your favorites and ignite the discussion with your colleagues and/or peers!

Join the conversation on Slack
If you haven’t already: join the conversation on Slack! SDN launched the Slack channel during SDGC17, and now over 1.300 people interested in service design have already joined the conversation. Read more on our Slack channel and talk with your peers.

Share your knowledge with peers
What do you think about ‘Service Design at Scale’? Do you agree with this year’s speakers? Or maybe you’d like to showcase your own projects? You’re welcome to do so! Upload your case studies, or write a community knowledge article. Think your case study is a winner? Then keep an eye out for this year’s Service Design Award – we will soon start our call for participants.
