THIS BRUNCH TOPIC: Life Design 101: A new mindset to help us live and work better.

Design Thinking is a powerful tool to ease uncertainty and navigate transitions. So why don’t apply it to our lives? With our guest speaker, Pilu Sanchez, we’ll talk about some of the most common assumptions that get us stuck. We’ll do some exercise together to help you understand where you are and how to design a way forward. You’ll leave with tools to reframe your challenges in the future by using a design thinker mindset.

Pilu faced a huge stuck moment when she moved from Madrid to Chicago. She used design thinking and creativity to get herself unstuck. She couldn’t find a master’s program that fit her so she designed her own way to educate herself. She attended workshops, talks, and meetups; She experimented with side projects; She built a community of social impact creatives and collaborated with entrepreneurs, small business, and companies; Pilu shared her learnings through talks and workshops; and deepened her knowledge of design strategy, social impact, and the future of work. And helped postgraduate students at Experience Institute do the same thing.

Pilu believes that design and creativity are the keys to living a happier life. She designs experiences and programs that help people lead, work and live better.
