Event description

Description

You are cordially invited to attend an exclusive, invitation-only executive gathering, proudly co-hosted by Adam James International, Lockton Companies and Method Garage.

When: Wednesday, October 4th from 4-7pm

Where: The Palm Restaurant (in the Westin), 1672 Lawrence St, Denver, CO 80202

What: Design thinking in the C-Suite

Who: Invitation only – CEOs, CFOs, and CHROs, as well as select members of the local investment community.

Every organization has its mysterious problems, and as a C-Suite executive it’s your job to navigate your team through them. Mysterious problems are big hairy challenges loaded with ambiguity and dependent on human behavior. They come with more unknowns than knowns. Existing approaches often fall short, leaving us with a nagging sense that there must be a better way to get our organizations outside of the box navigate through uncertainty toward viable innovation. Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that has proven to be highly effective at tackling some of the world’s most mysterious problems across organizations of all types.

By participating in this gathering, you will:

· Learn the basics of design thinking with an eye toward attacking your company’s most mysterious problems

· Learn how to ingrain human-centered approaches into strategy, culture, operations and initiatives

· Take away tools that help unlock creativity and get teams focused on what matters

Please accept our invitation to join this intimate gathering of Finance, HR, and Operations executives, facilitated by Denver-based, design thinking leader, Justin Zacks of Method Garage. After the open networking, Justin will help us explore this revolutionary practice through a hands-on workshop and a guided discussion on how these concepts can be applied to your role and your organization.

Our Keynote Speaker, Justin Zacks:

Justin Zacks is co-founder of Method Garage, a Boulder-based innovation and customer experience design company. Justin learned the art of leading corporate innovation in the school of hard knocks, holding executive roles in large organizations like Citrix and Avaya where he was responsible for building a culture of innovation and customer obsession. An expert in methods such as design thinking and customer journey mapping, Justin’s career passion is to help companies of all sizes create and retain loyal customers, employees and stakeholders. When he is not solving customer retention problems for Method Garage customers or spending time with his wife and two daughters, Justin volunteers as a strategic advisor at Boomtown startup accelerator, and serves as a design thinking coach at the famous Stanford d.school.
