This is Doing is delighted to announce the next Doing Design Festival to be held June 18, 2021. 

After the massive success of our first Doing Design Festival that was held in January of this year - a sold-out event with a 94% positive satisfaction rating from attendees - we were chomping at the bit to go again.

Feedback from Doing Design Festival V1

The focus for this event

The June Festival will be hyper-focused on Doing Design Online. With the pandemic shifting work into the online space, this has been a high-focus area for many change-makers and we at This is Doing are no different. All 24 of our trainers are fully remote, and we have had to relearn and rethink how to deliver value to our customers.

You spoke, we listened

Some of the feedback we received from the first Doing Design Festival was that you would like to see more focused sessions rather than broad introductions. We have taken than onboard and designed the sessions  to bring immediate value to how you work on a day to day basis. We have created a new Ask Me Anything session format where you can bring your questions about Doing Design Online to be discussed and debated together with our experts and peers within the network.

Here is  what is in store;

  • Doing Design Research online with Dr Qin Han and Dr Geke van Dijk
  • Understanding Employee Experience with Tamas Lengyel
  • Design for Accessibility and Content Design with Sarah Winters
  • Top Tasks with Gerry McGovern and Ulla Devitt
  • Journey Map Operations with Marc Stickdorn 
  • Online Facilitation with Adam Lawrence & Renatus Hoogenraad
  • and more. 

We also heard participants loved the networking and even wanted more! You spoke, and we listened. The Festival includes two networking sessions which will be linked with the Online Facilitation sessions, helping to form meaningful connections while putting your new-found facilitation skills to the test.

We have limited the number of €199 early-bird tickets for this event, so it will be first come first served. After the first 100 tickets are sold, the price will go up to €249 so buy your ticket early!
