Description

Design Thinking London Summer School

We are all expected to be creative and innovative in whatever we do; make good use of technologies in the digital age, bring new products, new services, find efficiencies, do more with less, create excellence in customer service, create experiences that delight, adopt new ways of working. The question is HOW can you do that? Our Design Thinking summer school will take you on the journey of the innovator, from spotting needs and problems, to analysing their complexity to turning them to opportunities for innovative solutions that make the world a better place.

Everyday we are faced with a multitude of choices and challenges, which can be daunting and confusing. How do you approach the challenges, how do you solve them? What process do you use? What roles come more natural to you, that of explorer, collaborator, story teller, organiser, builder? How do you deal with failure? What type of a risk taker are you? These are some of the questions you will explore. Our Summer School will help you dive deep in understanding your own mindset, building your creative confidence and giving you the skills and a smart toolbox that you will be able to use with ease and confidence in whatever you do.

Inspiration is one of the big drivers in innovation. Studying in Somerset House, one of London’s landmark gems, on the Northbank of River Thames is an exciting opportunity to explore art and culture, technology and science through the activities we organise for you. Our promise to you is: A learning experience you will remember!

But it doesn't stop there. Following the Design Thinking Summer school, you will receive two individual Innovation coaching sessions within six months. You will also be part of our virtual programme, which gives you access to articles and tools that are tailored to your needs.

We will be there to help you use the new knowledge and skills in your own context.

Following is a skeleton of the programme. We will send you a full agenda upon registration. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Registration and Programme Details will be done over Afternnon Tea on Sunday 13th August 16.00-18.00
