“Through Different Eyes. We live in the same world, but not in the same reality.”
We’ve chosen the theme “Through Different Eyes” focusing on the importance of empathy and how we experience reality in different ways. This is a very topical theme, connecting to the discussion on our polarizing societies, and it also allows us to explore empathy, a key quality of the Design Thinking mindset. We have invited an amazing group of people, our members of the cast, to help us look for the boundaries of empathy and how they overcame them.
The exciting new format of the conference, inspired by theatre, will help both speakers and audiences be engaged and surprised. In the true spirit of design thinking we will question everything, so prepare to be challenged.
We believe that new approaches are emerging because our world needs new solutions to solve the problems we are facing. Design Thinking, and other human centric approaches, is emerging as a result. It is a symptom, not an end.
The mission of the Design Thinking Conference is to keep the conversation on Design Thinking moving forward and push the boundaries as far as we possibly can.
Design Thinking Conference is powered by the DesignThinkers Academy Amsterdam. DesignThinkers Academy is one of the leading design driven innovation agencies helping organizations around the world making the transition from being strictly product orientated and sales driven, towards being service oriented and human centered.
