Maureen Thurston-Chartraw, Global Director, Design to Innovate at Aurecon, will share a few stories from her roles at Aurecon and Deloitte where she had the executive mandate to ‘change the way professional services are experienced.’
The path to innovation is design, and in her 45 minute presentation followed by Q&A, Maureen will explore how to think and work like a designer as a means to help prepare your organisation to be future ready.
Research shows that companies who employ design thinkers simply perform better. So come and awaken the design thinker in you.
This session will inspire you with a recognition of what you already know and help you start to visualise not only where you want to be but also how to get there.
