Event Details

Design does so much more than just make products look nicer or work better – it improves the way a business operates. Not only can design thinking increase the range of products a business develops, but it can also lead to more inspiring workplaces, happier staff, better service, and as a result greater customer satisfaction.

This workshop will explore what design-led innovation is, what the core values are and introduce you to the principles of design thinking for business. You will learn how to generate ideas and then explore how to embed a design-led culture of innovation in your own business.

Delivered by Alasdair McGill – Ashton McGill
