An Experience with a Professional Creative

ONE PART EDUCATION, ONE PART ENTERTAINMENT; A GREAT WORKSHOP ENGAGES EVERYBODY IN THE PROGRAM AND LEAVES THEM WANTING MORE

Workshops, by definition, include work, but they don’t have to feel like work. They do have to accomplish some business goal, but when the time feels like play, people participate more and contribute longer.

I design workshops that educate about creativity, innovation and design thinking. Adding exercises to apply what they learn helps them to make sense of their new knowledge, and think about how they might apply this inside their organization. Facilitating a positive experience around this thinking, rewarding their accomplishments, prepares them to make an impact when they return.

A Choreographed Experience

INTERACTIVE DESIGN THINKING WORKSHOPS PROVEN TO EDUCATE AND IMPROVE CREATIVITY

The design of our workshops empower participants to apply design thinking to their role within an organization. These become the people that generate new ideas and solve problems within their roles and responsibilities.

Based in education, The Idea Guy workshops provide for corporate applications. Each introduce the concept of Design Thinking through experience, providing relevant examples to understand potential impact. Verbalizing problems create statements, and a planned experience with the process ensures participant success. In the end, each holds a prototype – proof of their ability to solve a problem.

“Our team got exposed to the entire design thinking process; Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype, Test and Share. Kevin was passionate, articulate and patient.”

Workshops

YOU HAVE TO LEAD THE PROCESS, MAINTAIN CONTROL, AND GET EVERYONE ACROSS THE FINISH LINE

Workshops are an exhilarating way for people, teams and organizations to collaborate. Each workshop is designed for different people and different outcomes, based on different allocations of time. Each includes the process, and provide valuable insights from expert practitioners to help impact engagement and outcomes.

  • Intro to Design Thinking: How Design Thinking Helps People Collaborate to Solve Problems | A 90min hands on workshop designed to give the attendants an understanding of the Design Thinking process and its applications for problem solving. This workshop is well-suited to make people and teams collaborate on business problems.

  • Design Thinking Launch: How Teams Leverage Design Thinking to Solve Problems | A 4hr interactive workshop which guides attendants through an in-depth explanation of the Design Thinking process inclusive of collaborative exercises. This workshop is well-suited to allow participants more time to develop solutions to business problems.

  • Design Thinking Hackathon: How Design Thinking Helps Creating People-centered Solutions | A full day Design Thinking workshop designed to help participants tackle business problems from a different angle and create people-centered solutions. This workshop is well-suited to help cross functional teams solve organization wide problems.

Kevin is a dynamic facilitator who leads the process with a spirit of fun and precision. My team came out of the session with new ideas and ways of approaching their work! I highly recommend the The Idea Guy for new ways of approaching projects and problems!

Fantastic workshop hosted by Kevin and his team on Design Thinking for my MBA class at SDSU on New Products Management. This is a must for anyone interested in innovation and believe in thinking outside the box. My students loved it!

Paula Caterina Peter, Professor, San Diego State University

Kevin’s teaching style is engaging and informative. The interactive nature of his workshop was a great way to learn specific nuances and maximize engagement. Each student came away with skills tailored to our organizations. Kevin was encouraging and supportive. I’d certainly take another class from him again!

Kevin is an incredibly charismatic and engaging instructor. Throughout the course, Kevin’s energy and passion truly inspired the students, and Kevin’s course quickly became the favorite of the program. I believe his personality and expertise would be a valuable addition to any program.
