Event Website

Design Thinking Vancouver is a two-day un-conference being held in Vancouver, August 19 - 20, 2011.

Here's a sampling of the program:
Day One: Join in and ignite this event with a themed set of discussions on Friday afternoon, where all participants are encouraged to engage in a collective conversation, catalyzed by 5-minute panel* kick-starters. This is not your ‘sage from the stage’ presentation format. Our ‘themes’ come from the most active and lively discussion threads currently happening on the LinkedIn DT Group site, but are only the sparkplugs for starting the engine. Once we have ignition, the process will flow in the direction determined by those present to further stimulate dialogue, debate and plans for action.

Day Two: Guided by a proven unConference framework and highly experienced facilitators, this is the time for putting ideas, connections and challenges into action. People will pitch session ideas, which may include practical challenges, tools and solutions for design thinkers, shared research or ? Show up with an idea, a problem, a provocative question or simply join sessions of interest — participants determine their agenda for the day, so everyone has a hand in grabbing value from this event. The ‘return on investment’ is entirely up to you.
