Meet Your Design Thinking Everyday Jumpstart Facilitators

Design Strategist, President of Collabo Creative

Design Strategist, Co-founder of Collabo Creative

The Design Thinking Everyday Jumpstart is led by expert facilitators with rich experience in both teaching and practicing design thinking, so you won't need to worry that you're learning from a novice. Your program instructors are the best of both worlds, they teach what they practice and they practice what they teach—no lengthy lectures or dry presentations here! Your team will stay engaged during both interactive training days and will walk away with skills that can be applied to their own challenges the very same day.

Meet Collabo

For nearly a decade, our Collabo team has partnered with some of the most impactful organizations in Indiana. Working together, we've helped our clients realize success in driving customer experience initiatives built on actual customer voices, not cold-hearted, segmentation data that treats your customers like numbers and data points. 

We treat people like, well, people.
And we work with teams to do the same for their customers. This is how we've built lasting relationships with clients who've been with us from the start. 

We’re a team of expert doers and teachers. 
Really. Every one of our researchers and facilitators are masters in this field, seriously, they all have Master's Degrees in Design Thinking, Design Research or Design Strategy. Also, did we mention that our founders are known around the world for their teaching and writing in this field?
...Not too shabby for a small, women-owned company.
