Not your ordinary Conference

It is time to take the next step and truly deep dive into Design Thinking. Deep diving into Design Thinking means looking at it critically, discussing it constructively, and surprising ourselves with fresh perspectives. We’ve chosen the theme “Through Different Eyes”, because it is important to focus on empathy and how we experience reality in different ways.

Instead of definitions, tools and showcases, we have invited an amazing group of people to help us look for the boundaries of empathy and how they overcame them. For more information on our actors, our vision and the calendar, please visit the Design Thinking Conference.

We believe that new approaches are emerging because our world needs new solutions to solve the problems we are facing. As a result, Design Thinking and other human centric approaches are emerging. The mission of the Design Thinking Conference is to keep the conversation on Design Thinking moving forward and push the boundaries as far as we possibly can.

Design Thinking Conference is powered by DesignThinkers Academy Amsterdam, one of the leading design-driven innovation agencies helping organizations around the world make the transition from being strictly product-orientated and sales-driven, towards being service-oriented and human-centered.
