In Detail

If your team needs to generate some fresh ideas or approaches, look no further than this workshop. You can bring your projects or goals to this session and we'll guide you through these powerful techniques to help you gain new insights and big ideas.

You'll start by questioning the brief - probing the context, rationale and details to determine the right problem to solve and how to go about it.

We'll then move on to a design thinking staple - "How Might We...?" which will help you quickly generate potential ideas and approaches.

Using our "Idea Collisions" technique we'll smash these ideas together to make new and novel connections.

The workshop closes with an evaluation exercise to assess and prioritise your ideas, and a quick planning exercise to help you determine next steps.

What exactly is a Talkshop?

We're glad you asked! Simply put, a Talkshop is a cross between a talk and a workshop. They're short, punchy, thought-provoking sessions. We take a key concept and explain it clearly, then help your team explore it together to understand how it can help them in their work.
