Participate the unknown journey

Participate the unknown journey

Albert Einstein said “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” So where does the new thinking come from? I’ll share a very strange experience whereby I gave away the tools, became a participant and let everyone be the facilitator.

William specialises in human centered innovation and product development, with a passion towards new and emerging technologies. William’s other passion is community collaboration and actively participates with the various meetup groups in Melbourne and recently participated in the Queensland Ideas Festival with the OpenIDEO Local Food challenge.
