The Human-Centered Design Summit 2017
We are very proud to announce the second edition of the ‘Human-Centered Design Summit’ on the 12th of October 2017 with internationally acclaimed keynote speakers.
As you have undoubtedly experienced, it is increasingly difficult to innovate effectively in complex and rapidly changing sectors such as Healthcare, Finance, ICT, Manufacturing and Fast Moving Consumer Goods. Your end-user or customer is a very important stakeholder in this innovation process. Your customer should be given a central role, because if you ignore your customer, your customer will ignore you and innovation will fail. That is why Human-Centered Design is the key to sustainable, more cost-efficient and faster innovation.
We know this to be true from our 10 years of experience. But don’t just take our word for it, come join us and listen to the keynote speakers we have carefully brought together.
We will serve you an afternoon of World-renown experts
from the field of Co-Creation and Social influencing.
It will be an afternoon not TO be missed!

Connected homes and cars, wearable health technologies and smart use of data are shaping the future of insurance.
