Design Thinking

Unleash your creative potential with Ciaran O'Gaora, Founder, Zero G

Introduction
Design Thinking is a process used by many designers to stimulate creativity and develop new and innovative brands, products and services.

Analysis and rational thinking will only get you so far in business and communication.

If you want to develop fresh ideas and open up new opportunities you need to think beyond rational solutions and start feeling what they could be.

Companies like Apple, IKEA and Nike have built global brands by using the design process to create great products and communications that emotionally connect with their customers. These companies understand the power of things you can feel but not touch. They are prepared to move beyond conventional wisdom to invent something new. So, how do they do it?

This workshop introduces you to the process of Design Thinking and takes you through the simple steps involved. It is focused on opening participants up to their own creative potential and the opportunities for creativity within their business, and as such will be highly interactive. 

You will learn how to:
– use design as a process to harness your team/organisation’s potential
– to look and listen for new ideas
– to brainstorm and find inspiration in unexpected places
– develop new ideas and cross-pollinate others – create an environment for creativity within your team or organisation
