rethink your workshop design approach

Plan your workshops and meetings like any experience: holistically, with humans at the center, and for maximizing delight.

If you're a leader, an emergent leader, a scrum master, a product manager, a UX designer, a strategist, a marketer...if you work with people and try to bring them together to make choices, you'll find benefit from your time spent in this master class!

You investment for the 2 days is $1,200

A central location, TBD


Your instructors
