Creative mindset and design thinking would be the key in facing a future of complexity and uncertainty. With design as a growth and innovation-oriented competence, it is a timely session to promote creative thinking for complex problem-solving, building empathy and inclusivity, and delivering good solutions that place aspirations, wellbeing and needs of people, citizens and users at the centre.
Bringing in pioneers who are charged with forward looking visions from their respective sectors, the sharing and discussions will embrace challenges, approaches and actionable ways for integrating design thinking and creative mindset into policymaking, education, leadership and talent development across existing and emerging sectors, professions and industries.
Areas of exploration:
– Investing in Design – A good design is not a spending but an investment for future. What do you think?
– Nurturing Creative Talents – How should we groom our future leaders to meet the challenges of the 21st century?
– Crafting Enterprising Creativity – How might enterprise creativity take businesses to the next level?
– Be gamechanging – How might we change the world through design?
