If you are an inventor or entrepreneur launching a new product in a commercial market, design could be the make or break factor. A strong design can help you stand out from your competitors, strengthen your brand and raise the value of your intellectual property.

Both of the speakers at Making it by Design have learnt this crucial lesson and have used it to their advantage. Sebastian Conran and Mandy Haberman are two of Britain's foremost innovators; you will have the opportunity to learn from their experience and put your questions to them both.

Sebastian Conran
Sebastian Conran is the Director responsible for Conran & Partners products and graphic design. Sebastian's technical innovations have earned him many design and innovation awards. A founding contributor to Blueprint magazine, he has written numerous articles and books on design.

Mandy Haberman
Mandy Haberman is a highly inspirational, award winning inventor. The Anywayup Cup has won many awards including the DBA Design Effectiveness Awards for innovation and product design and the Most Innovative Product in the Tommy Awards, voted by parents.

There will a networking reception after the event to let you make great connections and gain some invaluable advice from British Library information experts, as well as Designing Demand and own-it, who specialise in supporting innovators to expand their business through design.
