At a time when hyper-change challenges the status quo, and technological, environmental, and societal changes are occurring simultaneously and at unprecedented rates, there is a demand for a new kind of leadership.

These leaders and future leaders are bold enough to see new patterns and think in paradoxes to create new norms. 

The International Design Conference (IDC), an annual thought leadership event organized by the DTI-Design Center of the Philippines, serves as an incubator for the so-called ‘dangerous ideas’—ideas rabid enough to propel the leadership needed to respond to the world’s rapid transformation.
