Design is creative problem solving - Joie Cruz

Because of COVID-19, most of us find ourselves stuck, figuring out what to do with our social enterprises. Maybe now we are in our neutral zone as Coach Kitty would describe it and exploring possibilities for our new beginnings. Now that we’re ready to take matters in our own hands, how do we start. Where do we begin?

Create limitless possibilities. Transform challenges into opportunities. That is how we rise. In addition to adapting to global changes, local industries should contribute their ideas. This session with Joie revolves around three key concepts: Inspiration, Ideation and Experimentation. We entrepreneurs have to create opportunities for our enterprises.

How? Through design.
