To help get your creative side inspired, for those who are able to come in a little early, we are offering a no-cost workshop* on ‘Design Thinking’. (Tuesday, September 24th, 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.). Design Thinking is a process to assist you and your organization/ team in developing a common language for innovation and creative problem-solving skills. Design Thinking keeps your event planning focused on the people you are designing the experience for. Led by Event Management Educator and Consultant Annie Frisoli, this fun and interactive workshop will involve participants in building and designing the ultimate festival / event. Attendees will leave with a newfound creative confidence to change how they think about designing human-centered experiences and to make bold new choices for their own events and organizations…plus, a few new friends.
