Mauro Porcini is SVP and Chief Design Officer at PepsiCo. In the past ten years, he and his team have won more than 1,800 design and innovation awards, and in 2018 PepsiCo was recognized by Fortune in its Business by Design list.
He was previously 3M’s first chief design officer. Over the years Porcini has been the recipient of many honors, among them Fast Company’s 50 Most Influential Designers in America, Fortune’s 40 under 40, and Ad Age’s list of the 50 world’s most influential creative personalities.
Mauro whole-heartedly believes that design has the power to create long-term value for companies and society - and innovation is the root of that power.
In this episode, Mauro shares his insights on working as a chief design officer at PepsiCo, how to future-proof your creative career, and plenty of insights from his latest book 'The Human Side of Innovation: The Power of People In Love with People'.

● What the traits are of a unicorn designer
● Finding the pathway to discovering what you want to do in life
