Design Thinking Conference
The inaugural Design Thinking Conference to be held on March 8 and 9, 2019 will convene industry leaders, business professionals, design thinking practitioners, educators, non-profits and public sector organisations eager to explore new ways of thinking, working and collaborating.
Over two days of plenary talks, breakout sessions, networking activities and co-creation workshops, participants will learn best industry practices and emerging trends in design thinking.
Day 1 will focus on applications of design thinking in the commercial, public, and non-profit sectors. The afternoon workshop will examine how design thinking can catalyse digital transformation in a human-centric way, support employee engagement and enable business model innovation. Participants will learn how to uncover latent needs and collaboratively build better user and stakeholder experiences.
Day 2 will focus on the application of design thinking in education institutes, from primary to tertiary education. Participants can join a Designing Your Life workshop in the afternoon, learning how to use design thinking to find one’s passion and purpose in life. The workshop is suitable for educators as well as mid-career professionals and retirees in search of their life path.
