CannonDesign Takes Stage at Fast Company Innovation Festival

We are excited to be leading multiple events as part of Fast Company’s 2019 Innovation Festival in New York City this November. The conference unites exceptional leaders and doers shaping the future for a week of inspired conversation, purposeful networking and meaningful takeaways.

On Tuesday, Nov. 5, CEO Brad Lukanic takes part in a panel discussion about a living-centered approach to our future, with Kaiser Permanente Chief Transformation Officer Jodie Lesh and Walt Disney Imagineering Vice President of Planning Design and Engineering Dan Carney. The trio will share how they’re transforming business and leadership strategies amidst transformational change across society, our economy, the workforce and key market verticals. The panel discussion will be moderated by Fast Company Senior Writer Mark Wilson and is invite-only for Fast Company Impact Council members.

Later that day, multiple CannonDesign team members will partner with Kaiser Permanente to host an interactive Fast Track session focused on how a living-centered approach to problem-solving can improve mental health and wellness. In this session, attendees will learn about how successful wellness design solutions must look beyond real estate and also consider policy, design, community investment, socioeconomic strata and numerous other factors to ensure sustainable success.

Participants in the Fast Track from Kaiser Permanente include:

  • David Grandy, Vice President Delivery System Design & Innovation
  • Michael Joyce, Systems Designer
  • Amy Lussetto, Systems Designer

Participants in the Fast Track from CannonDesign include:
