Happy Bootcampers  

“For me (bootcamp) was really great. I'm setting up a human-centred design capability for Coles, and it was important for me to understand the process of DT and be part of that process - not just understanding words and theory, but also the practical application as well. The learnings were really practical and it means I can now mentor the process as it's unfolding here."

“Design Thinking Boot Camp exceeded my expectations. We did practical work and examples throughout entire process, and we got the opportunity to apply some of the techniques, rather than just listening to the theory."

“I thought it was a great introductory session to the language and the tools of design thinking. It was hands on and engaging for people who had different learning styles. I can apply my learnings to my day to day in two dimensions. Firstly, in my personal working style. Secondly, the mindset and methodology we take at looking at different business opportunities."
