Designing your life workshop
This highly interactive workshop is based on the New York Times bestselling book “Designing Your Life” by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans.
🤔 ABOUT THIS EVENT
Navigating how your career and personal life fit together can seem a Herculean task. Competing objectives and scarce resources must all be negotiated smartly. This highly interactive workshop helps you discover your North Star and chart three different courses to it, the design-thinking way.
It’s not about what you want to do when you grow up; it’s about who you want to become and how – while making this one life of yours truly well-lived.
Join us at this workshop, based on the #1 New York Times bestselling book “Designing Your Life” by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans; led by Matthew Temple, international keynote speaker and Director of Alumni Career & Professional Development at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management; hosted at transforma bxl, an innovation playground created by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs.

Design thinking is both an innovation methodology and mindset that authors Bill and Dave have applied to the most interesting design problem: your life. Designers don’t wait for epiphanies on mountaintops (however poetic); they actually build their way forward through radical collaboration, reframing, curiosity, mindfulness of process, and a bias towards action.
This workshop is great for MBA school alumni accelerating their careers, pivoting their professional focus, starting a company, seeking more balance, moving into a more senior role, or even contemplating retirement and a total life re-boot “post-work”. Non-business professionals will also find it refreshingly relevant.
This is an interactive, roll-up-your-sleeves kind of event. Not for the faint of heart!
