Speakers from the 2022 workshop:
Keynote Presentation:
Human-Centered Design for Marketing Professionals
Explore how human beings can create increasingly better solutions to complex problems

In this workshop, attendees will experience an overview of all stages of the Human-Centered Design process – in a very compressed time frame.  Each participant will produce a tested prototype of innovation by the end of our 90 minutes.

In a hands-on experience, we’ll engage in activities for gaining empathy with the customer, involving customers in the design process, rapid prototyping and obtaining feedback (usability testing) to compare the user’s needs with the product’s features.

This activity will be a modified version of the one used by Stanford University to introduce entrepreneurs and innovators to the process. 

 What You Will Learn in the 90-Minute Session:

  • Overview of the design thinking process
  • We’ll uncover hidden customer needs
  • Brainstorm how to meet those needs, and iteratively build prototypes to address them. 
  • Then check in with the “customer” to verify satisfaction and define the next steps.

Who Should Attend?

Design thinkers and marketing professionals who share a passion for understanding customer needs and matching products or services to those needs. 

  • In-house or agency marketers
  • Small business owners
  • Public relations professionals
