About this event

Join us as we host a virtual two-hour ideation session on Wednesday 29th April, 7pm to 9pm (GMT). 

In these two hours, we will explore how we can use design thinking to support build a more resilient and stronger future to prepare our businesses, brands and ourselves for the current situation and what we may face ahead. 

OpenIDEO London will partner with Experience Haus, a leading design consultancy and training provider that helps students build their portfolio with real-world client projects. Offering the most immersive, hands-on courses in Product, Service and User Experience Design (UX).

This event follows OpenIDEO's Challenge around COVID19: BUSINESS PIVOT CHALLENGE. This Challenge poses the question:

How might businesses of all kinds rapidly adapt to support the immediate needs of the COVID-19 response, and enable a more just and resilient future?

COVID-19 is surfacing a spectrum of new needs for communities, patients and health workers around the world. Many sectors are struggling to stay afloat in an unprecedented time of economic uncertainty due to COVID-19 related restrictions.

Let's enable businesses of all sizes to meet today’s most pressing needs, while planning for a future that we know will look very different from our present.

The agenda and further details will be released closer to the date.
