What People from Deloitte, Qatar Airways, Orange Tee and SMU Have to Say About Design Thinking?

Updated: Feb 13, 2023

Hi, my name is Daniel.

I have trained more than 500 Design Thinkers in Singapore and abroad- and one of the most important things that my participants ask me is about "what's in it for me"? As in- how would Design Thinking benefit me in my career, business and livelihood?

You see- 3 most important skills (according to Forbes) in the 21st century:

- Critical Thinking (solve problems with solutions)

- Creativity (think outside the box)

- Collaboration (working with others)

All these, could be learned with the understanding of Design Thinking.

I went on to start my own company Emerge Creatives, later on got fascinated with Design Thinking and went on to tell the world about it.

I started to run workshops, speak in conferences, and train government professionals.

I also don't want you to just hear it from me. People like you and I have encountered the same issues and take up this course and this what happens:

💡Advance in Career (Move to Better Places)

💡Promotion and Salary Increment

💡Career Satisfaction (Leading Others with DT Secrets)

💡Thought Leadership (Empower Others w DT Knowledge)

Here are some real-life true case studies and testimonies from my very own Design Thinkers to tell you that this is the one-and-only course that you need to pick up that will enhance your career and your future.
