Enmore Talks. Erin Talks.
Earlier this week one of our designers, Erin Hoffman, was invited to talk at the Enmore Design Centre for their quarterly Enmore Talks – a forum that brings together several speakers from the industry to discuss a given topic. This year’s theme was on “Design’s Future”. An ex-student of Enmore, Erin’s work and recent accolades placed her in a good position to inspire and equip the students with the knowledge and know-how to succeed in the transition from college to industry.
Preparing students for the future, she focused on these 3 areas and their implications:
1. RECOGNISE AND CREATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOURSELF – IT’S UP TO YOU. 2. KNOW YOUR STUFF – READ, WRITE, FOLLOW, PRACTICE. 3. DON’T LET INEXPERIENCE AND FEAR CAUSE INERTIA – JUST DIVE IN.
Nails were chewed, knees were weak, palms were sweaty, and that was whilst she was still at her desk. Fortunately taking her own advice saw her through the presentation with loads of great feedback. Good onya Erin.
