Subject : Empathy-based Design Thinking for Leaders and Board Members


In this fascinating, engaging, fun and interactive session we’ll explore the meaning , value and practical applications that the Design Thinking discipline can deliver to you and the organizations you lead and serve.


Why this session will be valuable for you: 


The Design Thinking discipline fuels innovation, collaboration, and disruptive growth.  Design Thinking has entered mainstream business conversations.  Many organizations that embrace design thinking realize unique, substantial, and differentiating value combined with the opportunity to grow and innovate.
