Please visit DAYOFINNOVATION.COM for full event details and schedule for the day.
Design a Better Business - The world around you is filled with uncertainty. But, with in that uncertainty exists limitless opportunities to design (or redesign) game-changing businesses. These opportunities are there for the taking, if you know how to look for them. Justin will demystify design thinking, and show you how to use design as a disciplined approach to search, identify and capture value, turning uncertainty into opportunity.
The Power of Play in Design Thinking - 'Play' is an important tool in the design thinker's toolbox. Learn ways of incorporating it throughout the innovation process.
Unlock Innovation Through Play - Brady inspires communities to embrace play and find ways to incorporate it into their daily lives. Through hands on experience, Brady shows, rather than tells people the benefits of play in their lives.
Starting the Engine of Play - One company's quest to turn work into play and all that they learned along the way. Jeb Banner will share the journey his company has taken over the last 5 years to explore new ways of working playing.
