Innovation Taster Workshops

With our taster workshops you can explore more innovative ways of working, with techniques you can action straight away. 

What to expect

Whichever workshop you choose, you will learn by doing, led by our world-class team of educators and seasoned industry practitioners. We’ll show you how to run quick experiments and use rapid prototyping techniques to try out new ideas. This ‘fail fast, fail often’ approach can get you to a successful end-pont more quickly and reduce the risk of new initiatives.

Over the course of a few hours or a couple of days, you’ll begin to cultivate the innovator’s mindset like thousands of UCD learners before you.

You’ll be armed with new skills and an actionable toolkit that you can take back to your organisation. You can begin implementing some of these pioneering approaches straight away, for immediate impact.

Creativity shouldn’t be limited to people in R&D, designers, and engineers. These workshops are for everyone, from C-suite executives and start-up entrepreneurs, to department heads, programme managers, analysts, and researchers. They’re great fun too, making for an unusual away day or team-building activity. 

In these immersive workshops, we’ll show you how to harness the energy of a team to solve challenges together. You’ll learn to cultivate a more innovative environment within your organisation and take a design-thinking approach to solving real-world challenges.
