Planned Events & Meetups

Design Thinking Meetup 
06-Jun-2023 then 04-Jul-2023 .... and many more (I hope)

Date & Time Tuesday 6th June from 12:00 until 13:00 or until 13:30 (BST)

This Meetup is for anyone curious about Design Thinking (DT) workshop facilitation, DT workshop design and to meet others interested in DT.

For our June Meetup we may discuss our favourite workshop warm up exercises - so why not bring your favourite one to the discussion ... We could try a couple and then discuss when the different exercise are most appropriate. 

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible and as usual we are open to a diferent topic. 

I aim to complete everything in the first hour and follow with an optional 30 minutes discussion. The call is scheduled for 90 minutes and you are welcome to come for as long or as short as you wish.

You can sign up for this and some future dates here.

Over a number of Meetups we have co-created a set of Design Thinking tools and techniques. We will continue to build on that.

Please let me know what you would like to get out of the DT Meetups and I always welcome a 1:1 catch-up, drop me a line and we will setup a call.

The DT Meetup is held monthly - usually on the 1st Tuesday of the month - other commitments permitting.

Design Thinking - An Immersive Experience 
21-Oct-2020 & 03-Nov-2020

I ran this event during the IAF E&W 2020 Conference for people who were curious about Design Thinking workshop techniques or just fancied a short immersive and fun workshop experience. We applied the "Experience First and Explain Second” principle. We experienced a technique which can be used as a workshop icebreaker while at the same time demonstrating the power of Design a Thinking technique. After the short experience we has a brief discussion about key Design Thinking workshop characteristics and had an open Q&A. I ran it again in November.
