Eventbriten Account Management with Sarah Richie

What is the best way to deeply engage with your clients to better understand challenges and opportunities?

In this workshop with Raul Sarrot from Fresh Fish, we will explore how we could complement Design Thinking with other co-creation techniques to work alongside your client and deeply understand problems and to come up with game-changing solutions.

Topics we will work on include:

• Ideal ecosystems for creativity
• Understanding the root of the human problem
• Igniting co-creation in collaborative teams.
• Flowing through barriers to innovation
• Prototyping as a way of thinking.
