ARTS THREAD AT PSFK’S LONDON CONFERENCE
Each year, ideas site PSFK.com brings its celebration of creativity and talent to London in the form of a day-long conference. Speakers come from well-known companies like Jaguar, emerging mega-brands like Rapha and the start-up community.
At the heart of PSFK CONFERENCE LONDON is a special panel that explores how the young creative professionals plan to apply themselves in the workplace. In a special partnership with ARTS THREAD, PSFK’s Director of Consulting Scott Lachut will present new ARTS THREAD members Christopher Hall, Lior Smith, Nadine Spencer and Rosie Thompson alongside ARTS THREAD co-founder and director Alex Brownless to discuss the needs, wants and desires of a generation fueling a new era of business.
