On July 14, we had one of our best experiences in Positive X’s One-Day Design Thinking Workshops. With intense activities and rapid design challenges, we graduated 21 fully-fledged Design Thinkers!
The July cohort has been our largest group so far in all our workshops. Our coaches saw individuals from all backgrounds transform into powerful innovators as they learned the process of Design Thinking.
Here are some of our favourite moments:
Team 2 goes over their ideas on the board.
