DESIGNING YOUR LIFE IN-CITY RETREAT
Fri, Apr 21, 2017, 8:00 PM – Sat, Apr 22, 2017, 6:00 PM EDT
Are you confused about your life direction & goals? Are you looking for a unique opportunity to reimagine your calling this Spring? Join us for this two day, in-city retreat led by Dave Evans, co-author of the New York Times bestselling book, DESIGNING YOUR LIFE.
Harnessing decades of design thinking and Dave Evans’s design experience, the Designing Your Life programs will address the “wicked problem” of designing your life and career. These hands-on experiences offer a framework, tools, a community of peers, and a place to work on these issues through assigned readings, reflections, and in-class exercises. Instructor Dave Evans uses a design thinking approach to help participants from any field develop a constructive and effective approach to finding and designing their vocation beyond their current status.
The programs incorporate an introduction to design thinking which is then applied via a framework that addresses the integration of work and worldview, the realities of engaging the workplace, and practices that support vocation formation throughout your life. Participants will deal with issues ranging from how to find and experience meaning-making in work to how to network and get an interview.

DAVE EVANS, CO-AUTHOR OF DESIGNING YOUR LIFE
Dave started his third career teaching “How to apply the innovation principles of design thinking to the wicked problem of designing your life” in the Stanford Design Program in 2007. His first career was a failed attempt to solve the energy crisis in the late 70's – a drastically premature venture. Dave's second sojourn was 30+ years in Silicon Valley involving 15 years of inside roles, including leading the early mouse and printer projects at Apple and co-founding Electronic Arts, where he was VP of Talent. In 1990, Dave shifted to the role of the "outsider," working on projects ranging from management consulting to growing tech firms, large and small. Dave holds a BS and MSME from Stanford and a graduate diploma in Contemplative Christian Spirituality from San Francisco Theological Seminary. He lives with his wife Claudia and their dogs, Jack and Daisy, on the coast in Santa Cruz.
