What people say about our workshops

“I loved this 3 day workshop! Iain and Karina know their stuff, and have inspired me to think more holistically about using HCD principles and techniques. I feel confident I can influence and create change.”

“Thanks for a fun and informative introduction to Human Centered Design. Great facilitation and group activities. I really enjoyed the 3 day course.”

“So great to see/hear work with optimism and creativity having such meaningful impact in what can otherwise be dry business/gov strategies. Definitely received so many answered to roadblocks in our current customer focus and cultural change. Thank you.”

“This is the only service design course I know of that addresses the intersection between tools, socialisation and organisation/of project activities. You nailed it.”

“When asked “is there anything from the past 3 days that you think you could apply to your work?” …… I am struggling to think of anything that I won’t apply to work!”
