With Designing Insights’s expert coaching and guidance, I led a productive, high-profile, all-day creative ideation session for a team at WHYY. They provided me with invaluable insights and advice that made the workshop session a success.
Design thinking makes you feel like a superhero. It’s empowering and deeply satisfying. Through my work with Designing Insights, I’ve learned how to build empathy, embrace the unknown, and foster effective communication.
You’ve given us transformative ideas, tools, and exercises we can use far beyond the workshop. This has already impacted how we do business, and gets at the very heart of what it means to be human-centered.
The lessons learned from our crash course were many. Dana distilled the most important pieces of the process in a meaningful and impactful way … and instilled in us the power of taking design thinking beyond the workshop.
Your organization NEEDS Dana. Her studied Design Thinking approach, blended with her expertise from years in the field, give her rare insight as a mentor, coach and leader. Your work will never be the same.
The workshop Designing Insights developed and facilitated was a game-changer. Thanks for one of the most meaningful professional experiences I’ve had in a long time.
There was a buzz of excitement after our workshop. Dana’s and Jennifer’s knowledge and passion, combined with the way they put it into action …. changed the way we will think about approaching and solving problems in the future.
The design thinking bootcamp was a turning point for my team. It solidified a way of working that is more open and transparent, and has given us a systematic and proven working method.
The workshop was spot-on and struck the perfect balance of theory and practice. My team walked away with a new-found appreciation for how to tackle more unstructured problems.
The workshop brought back the “light” in how I think.
I’ve worked with Designing Insights to incorporate design thinking strategies into my organization and it has been an amazing and transformative experience.
Your workshop showed me that design thinking can be learned, and there are certain steps that can be followed to make innovation easier. Thanks for showing me that I can come up with original and inspiring product ideas!
We had a great workshop with Designing Insights! My favorites were the way the concept of design thinking was broken down into digestible steps and immediate “ahas” of how it can be applied to our work and personal lives.
I highly recommend Dana’s workshops to anyone who wants to improve how they relate and listen to audiences outside their institution and colleagues inside their organization.
The user research and personas that Designing Insights delivered was inspiring, thoughtful, and thorough. It is a foundational piece of research for our project, and my team will refer to it for many months to come.
I gained powerful hands-on tools for generating innovative ideas with my team.
Dana infused energy, insights, and a collaborative spirit into the research and evaluation of a new, cross-disciplinary initiative. She skillfully navigated the nuances of a complex project and delivered a thoughtful and invaluable report that synthesized the learning, themes, and outcomes.
