A ‘non-designers’ introduction to creative problem solving.

Now more than ever before we need to focus our energy on creating the Future.

Healthcare. Politics. The Economy. The Environment. When ‘Business as usual’ is no longer an option and the way forward is unclear, how do we look at the world in new ways, with fresh ideas to face the many challenges ahead?

This session is a first step for ‘non-designers’ who are curious about Design Thinking — a structured approach to creative problem solving used by Design-led companies like Apple, Google, IBM and Nike.

In it, we’ll explore ‘The Why, what and how’ of Design Thinking, demystifying the mindsets and methods whilst giving practical insights into how they can be applied to create innovation and solve complex problems.

And we’ll show how it can be used not only to create great Products and Services, but also to overcome the daily challenges we face on a personal level.

Join us, flex your creative muscles and help create a better tomorrow.
