Creativ Connects 2023


A Digital Design Thinking Meet-Up held on the 1st Tuesday of every Month. Here is what to expect:

1. Networking

2. Valuable Discussions 

3. Freelance Roundtables 

Please let me know what you would like to get out of our Creativ Connects - I always welcome a 1:1 catch-up. Drop me a line and we will setup a call.

Strength in Numbers

Creativ Connect was created with the intention of cultivating a friendly and safe space for facilitators to share stories, make connections, receive friendly advice and practice applying some design thinking techniques.

When a diverse group of designers, dreamers, doers, activists, storytellers and creators, come together, ideas abound and future possibilities get more exciting.

We meet in cyberspace! Our digital meet-ups allows creatives & activists from anywhere in the world join in the conversation. Make sure you're part of it!

What to 

1. Networking

Learn from well-known designers, activists, and everyone in between!

2. Valuable Discussions

Opportunities to chat and connect with fellow creatives. You can discuss anything and everything from design thinking methods to your current work to seek feedback, advice, help and support.

3. Freelance Roundtables

Gentle workouts for our Design Thinking muscles in a safe space with friendly support. We practice some tried and tested methods and sometimes experiment with new ones

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.
