About the course

An immersive programme for creative entrepreneurs, innovation directors and business owners – introducing you to London's most innovative businesses and uncovering the latest approaches to design thinking and innovation.

Every day will consist of keynote presentations, case studies, roundtable discussions and visits to the top companies who adopted the human-centered approach, where you will meet the teams behind their latest research and innovation. Some people call our format a 'design safari', some say it's a VIP behind-the-scenes experience or a research trip. During the week you will also explore the latest trends and discoveries in virtual reality, artificial intelligence, sustainability and future of technologies. You will learn about the latest innovation methodologies, and best tools for product and business management – and have the opportunity to ask any questions in an informal atmosphere.

All lectures and workshops will take place in the actual agencies giving participants a better context of the topic. This programme is designed to give you inspiration and tools for your work, to help you get an expert opinion on your current projects, and keep you up-to-date with the latest trends in the industry.

What you will learn

  • What methodologies and processes companies use to create new products and services
  • How to create a customer-obsessed culture
  • How to measure the impact of design
  • Corporate innovation best practices
  • Mistakes companies make when conducting research on the global scale
  • Best practices in startup ecosystems and corporate incubators
  • How we can consider the intended and unintended consequences of our products
  • Latest trends and new technologies

Programme Structure

Morning session

It is the first session of the day, it will take the form of a lecture, fire-side chat or a workshop in one of London's top companies.

Afternoon session

It is the second session of the day, where you will have a chance to visit another top London agency and listen to their team revealing tools and methodologies they use in everyday work.

Debrief and the city

After a long day of absorbing new ways of working, innovating and creative thinking we will debrief the content of the day to better organise them in our minds. This activity will be short and engaging and it will take place straight after the afternoon session in locations that we can then visit as cultural and social activities such as museums, galleries, event spaces or bars.
