I’m so excited about what I have experienced last weeks. As I told you in December, that month I had a two-day training at DesignThinkers Academy about: guess what? ☺ Yes, design thinking!. On February 5th I landed in Amsterdam (by the way, stayed on a great flat) for my personal training. The team was fabulous: Arne, Tim, Marjo, Eduardo, Simone, all of them were very nice!. The first day on the studio was awesome, I thought my brain was going to melt down! They taught me some tools, and as they knew I wanted to start my own thing we focused a lot on the “Think like a startup canvas“.
First comes first, we started with my values (that we had already started on December), you might think it is as simple as respect, honesty, integrity, etc; but it is actually deeper than that.
Then, we went into all the phases of the canvas. I have a lot of work to do!! But that’s the beauty of working in something that you get passionate about ;) You just can’t stop thinking about it! The Design Thinkers team also shocked me with a proposal of becoming part of the family and that my projects can be supported by their brand — guess they saw some kind of potential xD — so this training was not only very educative and productive, it was my step 3: make it visual! Once you start writing all the information that is in your brain you can start to organize it and #Cowabunga! every thought starts taking form.
