He has worked 15 years in his Passion: Design & Innovation , and in particular helping large and small companies in figuring out how to connect with their customers through meaningful and useful products or services.

Gary will explain the key tools used by innovation specialists to find new opportunities and develop ideas that resonate with customers and turns them into users! You will walk away with the ability to find latent customer needs that you will be able to test and use the information to help validate your idea, build a better business plan and more likely to convince potential investors to invest in your idea.
The Meetup venue has been graciously offered to our group by Cecilia Tham, the Founder of MOB. MOB – Makers of Barcelona – is a space that inspires people to work, play and learn creatively and collaboratively.
After the event:
Included in your admission cost is 1 free beer/glass of wine.
After Gary's presentation we will hold a 1 hour networking session. I know a lot of you are looking for talent to join your startups...
I really like About.Me ( example here:http://about.me/jeffreyrobinson ) - You can put up a great page and story about you, the way you want to, not the way a platform tells you to. The service is free...
Looking forward to seeing you at the event.
Have a great day and upcoming week!
