Design Thinking helps navigate the unknown through cycles of creativity and critical thinking. Think of it as a superpower that allows for ideation in new markets and new purposes/applications for existing technology/products. Given the current COVID situation, and the lull it has pressed into sales cycles for several SMEs across the ocean technology industry, there is an opportunity to provide training into how your business can creatively repurpose your existing products for new markets, or retool your current production for new purposes.
Join us for a two-part virtual workshop led by Doug Jones, CEO of IGNITE, and Christine Hamblin, Innovation Principal at Accenture. These online sessions will be highly customized to the ocean tech community, highlighting relevant examples of repurposed products and offering useful activities to help develop the creative and cognitive muscle. The desired outcome of the workshop is to facilitate ongoing innovation for sales optimization that will help regional companies to recover and build resilience during this unprecedented time.
Part One with Doug Jones: Friday, July 24th | 10:30 am – 11:30 am
Part Two with Christine Hamblin: Wednesday,. July 29th | 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
