Design Thinking Workshop

The Way to Customer Centricity

Innovation and Creativity are now widely accepted as the driving forces behind business success, and are among the most highly prized qualities in today’s leaders.
— Tom Kelley, Bestselling author of The Art of Innovation

There has been a recent shift to true human centred interaction with our clients and customers. But what does that really mean and how do we truly step into our customers' shoes? 

Join fellow entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and business owners as we workshop the concept of human-centred design and utilise the principles of Design Thinking to engage customers and convert engagement into sales. This kind of Thinking will help public or private sector organisations innovate and grow. We will be using Lego - so get ready to get tactile!

Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer’s toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.
