ABOUT EMILY EISENHART // Designer & Producer
Every day Emily sees the power of design thinking as a way to creatively problem-solve and build opportunities for new products and services. As a Producer at IDEO, she focuses on human-centered
design research, creative strategy and project production. Her experience spans education, technology, financial services, environment design and civic innovation.
A San Francisco denizen and explorer of cultures, Emily is fascinated by urban environments and passionate about neighborhood revitalization. Last year at a civic hackathon, Emily
co-founded SquareFoot, an online platform that connects entrepreneurial renters to short-term leases in idle space. She and her team have spent the past year popping up food, art and retail along the Market Street corridor in an effort to create commercially viable and socially vibrant experiences.

ABOUT STRATEGY TNT
Strategy TNT is a monthly speaker series in San Francisco where strategists of all kinds — designers, educators, makers, big thinkers, creative problem solvers — gather to learn, network, and share ideas.
The philosophy: Strategy TNT provides a forum for strategists of all kinds to share their stories. Relentlessly focused on collaboration, we recruit speakers from diverse disciplines — design, engineering, marketing, non-profit, medicine, food — whose experiences have the power to inform and inspire our own work.
The reasons to show up: You want to learn something new, share something cool you’ve done, or maybe do some networking. You like hanging out with interesting people and enjoy good conversation.
