Workshop Overview

If you are like most 20-somethings you want a career that is about more than just money. You want meaning, and impact, and a balance between work and the rest of your life. But how do you get it? This is workshop is designed just for you - for folks starting their career. You’ll learn the process and mindsets of the powerful innovation tool called Design Thinking and apply this to designing your life with a great career, in it.

You’ll build your Compass, brainstorm the possibilities, and leave with a prototype action plan that will help start your career journey right! You will participate in highly interactive activities where we work together to reframe dysfunctional beliefs about work and life, explore the social and personal narratives that shape Singaporeans, and dig into the methods designers use to design possibilities for your future. This workshop teaches designer tools and mindsets that will increase your creativity and confidence.
Our goal is to help get you unstuck and come up with multiple ways to prototype your future. Best of all, you will do this in a community of other young Singaporeans who have come together to design better lives. The instructors and the participants have a one goal - to support you on your life design journey.
