You will have a chance to meet the teams behind the most ground-breaking products and learn how they approach design and UX strategy, work with clients and improve their services. This programme consists of keynote presentations, case studies. fire-side chats, roundtable discussions and mini-workshops all conducted at the actual company offices – that gives an even better perspective on how they work and collaborate.

Programme structure

Morning guest

The first activity of the day includes an informal talk to activate the brain and body to receive the creative stimuli of the day. You will interact with other participants, share your ideas, experiences and expectation for the day and meet local professionals to get to know more about the backstage of the innovation industry.

Morning session

It is the first session of the day, it will take the form of a lecture, fire-side chat or a workshop in one of London's top companies.

Lunch break

Between the morning and afternoon sessions we will have a short break when you will have an opportunity to have lunch and enjoy the surroundings of the day programme locations.

Afternoon session

It is the second session of the day, where you will have a chance to visit another top London agency and listen to their team revealing tools and methodologies they use in everyday work.

Debrief and the city

After a long day of absorbing new ways of working, innovating and creative thinking we will debrief the content of the day to better organise them in our minds. This activity will be short and engaging and it will take place straight after the afternoon session in locations that we can then visit as cultural and social activities such as museums, galleries, event spaces or bars.
