What is RISE?

Connect with professionals from the design and business communities at this inspirational breakfast keynote featuring the insights of nationally recognized thought leaders from within and beyond the design industry. Each year we seek to ignite interdisciplinary innovation and invite our guests to be inspired in their creative practice.

Meet our Speaker!

Therese Huston is a renowned speaker, cognitive scientist, and feedback guru. She was the founding director of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at Seattle University. Her new book, Let’s Talk: Make Effective Feedback Your Superpower, is a guide for how managers and leaders can give better feedback, cultivate emotional intelligence, and build trust and engagement. Huston speaks regularly about how to give and solicit better feedback, how to curb unconscious bias in the workplace, and how to make smart people smarter at work.
