John Thackara is exclusively represented for his speaking engagements by CSA Celebrity Speakers in Eastern Europe
“In his invaluable presentations John Thackara shows that we should not think about the world of design, but always about the design of the world. John’s obvious commitment to driving real change has helped him become one of the most highly sought-after speakers on design thinking today.” – says Christina Vlahova, head of the CSA Celebrity Speakers Bulgaria office – “And we are very happy to be able to offer our clients across Eastern Europe the possibility to invite John Thackara to their conferences and events and to have the opportunity to learn directly from him. John Thackara’s presentations are invaluable, having lectured in more than 40 countries around the world.”
Formerly the director of the Netherlands Design Institute, John is at the forefront of business, technology, sustainability and design, where he meshes innovations that drive social change with design. He regularly consults with companies, cities, and governmental organizations to re-imagine services and structures.
John Thackara is concerned that projects should be rooted in reality, and have a purpose other than high-falutin' idealism. He offers a resolutely pragmatic attitude and a fervent, not slavish, belief that design can be used to change the world. His model is a collaborative approach, that meshes business with design rather than have them live in separate worlds.
