"d-school Afrika Confestival"

Rethinking Design Thinking Invited!

The Hasso Plattner School of Design Thinking in Africa at the University of Cape Town has been brave enough to invite me to present Rethinking Design Thinking at their new upcoming global “confestival” in October!

Much appreciated and should be interesting. The "like-minded" part is often a bit tricky but we are always happy to contribute…our 02 rethinking cents. For me this will be a virtual talk.

"The Hasso Plattner d-school Afrika at the University of Cape Town (UCT) together with the Global Design Thinking Alliance (GDTA) will be hosting the prestigious d.confestival, the first design thinking event of its kind in Africa, and will open the doors to its new home on the university’s middle campus – an architectural marvel and first of its kind in Africa.” "d.confestival: Africa’s first Global Design Thinking event will take place from 12-14 October 2022, at the Hasso Plattner d-school Afrika." Very interesting to see the positioning of this new design thinking school.

It should be interesting to see the mix of content at this conference...from the marketing side and the rethinking side.

Stay tuned!
