Skills-based facilitation is totally my jam. Or preserves. Depending on how you look at it.
Facilitating a staff retreat? Looking for engaging content for your conference or event? I'll tailor a workshop towards the needs of your audience so they can walk away with tangible skills and next steps in building relevant and meaningful offerings, programs, and initiatives.
One-time workshops can focus on design thinking as a whole, or a specific element, and range from 90 minutes to 4 hours.
Workshop series can deep dive into specific elements and span several days, weeks, or months depending on your needs.
A few of the topics I facilitate include:
Design thinking deep dive
In this interactive session, we'll dive into an overview of what design thinking is and why using human-centered design is pivotal in the success of your initiative. Participants will get hands-on experience with the technique and clear takeaways for how to apply it to their work.
Understanding your consumers, customers, and collaborative market are cornerstones to building a relevant offering. We will walk through how to use empathetic interviews, observation, and other techniques to have a deep understanding of who you are serving and how to serve them best.
How do you test out your idea? Instead of building something "perfect" and then gaining valuable feedback, we will create a plan to start receiving user feedback on your offering quickly, efficiently, and cheaply so you can iterate and build something that is relevant and highly desired.
Using business as a force for good
I'm passionate about using business as a force for good, and will help your organization integrate a relevant, meaningful, and sustainable way to incorporate social impact into your business, as well as into your operations.
