Collaborate to innovate

DSC 9626Innovation is driving the heart of our future economies. As we push for greater innovation the need to collaborate across widely different specialisms has become a requirement to gain more and more innovative solutions. The question is HOW? How do we enable professionals who have long been separate, or even incompatible, and ask them to produce something new and innovate?

In this talk Wesley Meyer, designer at the inter-disciplinary firm Gensler, will share trends, personal insights and practical advice on HOW to enable collaboration for innovation. The talk will cover better understanding other designers (and stakeholders), unlocking the hidden value in your design process, dispelling some misconceptions about innovation and how to have more effective and collaborative meetings. There will be jokes too. We look forward to a lively Q&A.
