Dear Wolf Siegert,

We are happy to invite you to our next GDTA PowWow webinar – an opportunity for global Design Thinkers to gather online to discuss the latest developments in our community.

GDTA PowWow #6 with Jeanne Liedtka, UVA Darden School of Business

The next online session will take place on January 19th, 2021 at 6:00 pm (CET) / 12:00 pm (EST) via Zoom.

We look forward to welcoming our speaker Jeanne Liedtka, who will disuss her upcoming book "Experiencing Design: The Innovator’s Journey".

This book was created for all those who want to become Design Thinkers by truly experiencing it. The authors Jeanne Liedtka, Karen Hold, and Jessica Eldridge point out that the innovative potential of design can only be embraced by changing the ways we think and act. That contains the process of becoming a more real and authentic version of ourselves. Therefore it is necessary to dive deep into design experiences to effect positive impacts not only in yourself, but also in your team and organization. With this guide you will be accomplished successfully through different process phases in your personal Design Thinking journey.
