Design Workshops for Teams
Markets & technology keep changing, but people are always at the core. Robust, successful innovation is about understanding human nature.
I've spent my career on a quest for that understanding. My workshops distill the most powerful insights from acting, psychology, & over 16 years in human experience design to help you make stuff people love.
It's Not A Lecture
You won't be just listening to me talk: workshops are about doing exercises and getting things done.
Wherever You Are
I'll come to you, whether at your offices or off-site, your conference or retreat. This works best face-to-face.
Custom Tailored for YouWe'll discuss your objectives beforehand and co-create the workshop your participants need.

Design Storytelling for Sustainable Habits

Presentation Skills for Your Perfect Design Pitch
Whether you work in a squad, startup, or social enterprise, teamwork means pitching your ideas to other people. In this workshop, we'll speak with emotion, discovering acting techniques & applying them to your unique story. Let's get your rocket ship off the ground!

"Thank you for the interesting workshop. I liked your metaphorical way of presenting, it clearly shows a different perspective of design thinking. Also, I really liked the ‘imaginary table’ game, acting approach indeed has its way to make a meaningful point in a pure, basic way. Full support to you and The Greatness Studio, stay great!"
