For Design Thinking professionals who practice what they preach in their own organizations or with other organizations.
Because It is time to take the next step and truly deep dive into Design Thinking.
Deep diving Design Thinking means critically looking at it, constructively discussing it and surprising ourselves with fresh perspectives.
It means to reframe and be sure about the problem we are solving.
It means to feel and discuss how truly empathic we can be.
It means to experiment and to test out new perspectives.
It means to envision and discover how far we can bring Design Thinking.
Instead of definitions, tools and showcases, we will focus on inspirations to question oneself, debates to get further, perspectives outside our comfort zones, all in togetherness and positivism, and with a bit of lightness.
The Design Thinking Conference is an interactive and high-energy gathering of experienced design thinking practitioners from around the world. We offer a platform to share knowledge and further your understanding of what is driving the changes we all experience in today’s world.
The Design Thinking Conference is not a traditional conference, but highly inspired by theatre. We have developed an experimental and exciting new format to challenge both the speakers (our actors) and the audience (supporting actors).
With this conference we aim to shake you up and enrich you with new insights, not just leave you comfortable and confirmed in your beliefs. No preaching to the converted, but experimenting, experiencing, having fun and being surprised.
The Design Thinking Conference offers many opportunities to get your hands dirty. All the speakers (main actors) will be running experiments and during the two days we’ll offer several breakout sessions.
We’ll post the details of all sessions on this website soon.
Our own Arne van Oosterom, founder of the Design Thinking Conference, speaks about Empathy, making Connections and building Bridges in view of Design Thinking.
