Design thinking and innovation skills – free workshops in Oxford

Posted on behalf of Innovation Forum Oxford. Blogged by Rebecca Ehata on April 9, 2018.

Innovation Forum Oxford is offering two fantastic opportunities to explore design thinking and innovation skills. You don’t need any prior knowledge of the topics to take part in either event, as training will be provided in both sessions. Participants with a broad range of backgrounds are encouraged to bring their diverse perspectives to the table. Attendance at both sessions is  strongly recommended.
