About this Event, 


Hello Future G.O.A.Ts, 

We're stuck at home and probably you are stuck as well. So why not get together and talk about something for an hour. We'll be inviting Authors, Entrepreneurs & Leaders in to talk about their work and answer questions from you, the future G.O.A.Ts.


About the author: Mike Monteiro is the co-founder and design director of Mule Design. He prefers that designers have strong spines. Mike writes and speaks frequently about the craft, ethics, and business of design.

He loves design so much he wrote three books on the topic, Design is a Job, You’re My Favorite Client & Ruined by Design. Mike received the 2014 Net award for Conference Talk of the Year for his inspirational polemic on responsibility, “How Designers Destroyed the World.”


About the Book: The combustion engine which is destroying our planet’s atmosphere and rapidly making it inhospitable is working exactly as we designed it. Guns, which lead to so much death, work exactly as they’re designed to work. And every time we “improve” their design, they get better at killing. Facebook’s privacy settings, which have outed gay teens to their conservative parents, are working exactly as designed. Their “real names” initiative, which makes it easier for stalkers to re-find their victims, is working exactly as designed. Twitter’s toxicity and lack of civil discourse is working exactly as it’s designed to work.


The world is working exactly as designed. And it’s not working very well. Which means we need to do a better job of designing it. Design is a craft with an amazing amount of power. The power to choose. The power to influence. As designers, we need to see ourselves as gatekeepers of what we are bringing into the world, and what we choose not to bring into the world. Design is a craft with responsibility. The responsibility to help create a better world for all.



Ticket Price: ₹99. Economical. And the guest takes a cut. In Physical meeting that amount is less than the Uber to the location (Then we have our Entry Ticket, Way back etc). Now you can literally participate from anywhere in the world (Bedroom, Living room, Toilet Seat*(Not Recommended). We guarantee you'll get more than ₹99 value out of it and charging admission makes it more likely that the people who sign up plan to show up. But hey we understand the current uncertain times, so no one is turned away! Use Code: "ALLABOARD" for a free ticket if you need to. 

How does it work? We use conferencing system Zoom. Once you sign up we'll send you a confirmation and the Zoom access code two hours before the event. You don't have to join in with the video, but we love see some smiling faces. 



What if you didn't like it? You'll get your ₹99 back and the next event you attend is on us.
