Event: Design Thinking à la Speed Dating
Published by Maike
We said: “Try it, it’ll be fun”. We were overwhelmed about the positive energy this event created among the participants.

In 3 rapid sessions we experienced selected elements of design thinking to understand where and how it can create value:

  1. How to create empathy? Get a first experience in user/customer/employee immersion.
  2. How to find crazy ideas and turn them back into a realistic solution? Get a new experience in creativity.
  3. How to pitch your idea? Communicate with impact among your target group.


What participants say about the speed dating:

“Thanks again for the great session yesterday. I enthusiastically told my colleagues about it, I will repeat it in our company”.

“Thanks for the interesting and likeable evening. To be redone.”
