Hey everyone!

We’ve scheduled our next meet-up for the 26th of January @ 7pm in the Insight Centre, NUI Galway.

In this session we will be running a Design Thinking workshop.

For those of you not familiar with Design Thinking, it is a user-centred methodology for innovation that is taking the business world by storm!

In an increasingly complex world, customer satisfaction is a key market differentiator, with companies such as AirBnB, Uber, Amazon, IBM, Facebook achieving market leadership by embracing design thinking strategies.

This session is particularly aimed at those who are new to the Design Thinking process, and we invite people from all backgrounds to participate.

RSVP is required so we can prepare enough materials for everyone, we will have a maximum capacity of 20 people. Please note that we will follow a structured approach to the workshop, so kindly be on time :)

Tea / coffee will be available at the venue, and we will have some time for networking before and after the session.
