Design Thinking Ghana Conference (DTGC)

Theme: Applying Design Thinking to Today’s Challenges

Date: 19th May 2017

Time: 9am – 5pm

Location: CEIBS - 5 Monrovia Road, East Legon, Accra. Behind The Diagnostic Center.

We are organizing the Design Thinking Ghana Conference (DTGC) to discover the Design Thinking work in the Ghanaian community by first focusing on how the practice is being used to solve challenges in various fields, then going on to understand how others were using it to enrich their business value propositions.

As such, the DTGC has the following dual-focused objective for 2017: To unearth local Design Thinking applications and to expose the practice to a wider audience.

Participants will learn from individuals and representatives of organizations that employ the Design Thinking process in their projects. They will also gain an understanding of the Design Thinking process, the tools involved and their use. Finally, they will be inspired to adopt the Design Thinking process more broadly in their work.

To achieve these objectives and outcomes, the conference has assembled a world class list of facilitators with global experience and exposure to the Design Thinking field. The keynote speaker is Arne Van Oosterom, Founder and Senior Partner of the Design Thinkers Academy in the Netherlands.

There will be workshops in a variety of areas such as gathering impactful consumer insights, new product ideation and prototyping, user interaction design, business model development and entrepreneurship, community engagement projects, policy development and innovative prize projects.
