As competition in all industries intensifies, it is more important than ever to focus on innovation and
creativity to differentiate yourself from your competitors.

The talk discusses 3 main points:

2. What is the value in understanding the time we are living in?
3. How to shift point of view and to see things on various perspectives to stay ahead of the curve?

As humans who have walked this earth a few decades, we think of ourselves as rational and objective beings, especially when faced with a decision. The truth is, we all have unconscious biases that constantly cloud our judgement.

As professionals, acknowledging our own biases is imperative in creating better workplaces and products that are inclusive and account for all potential users.

In this workshop you will learn & practice:
1. What is implicit bias and what kinds of biases are out there?
2. What are your own biases & where did they come from in your personal life journey?
3. How to make unbiased decisions in work and in life?

We live in a fast and ever changinig world - from technology, to social structures, to climate and even our own needs and desires changes constantly, yet our built environment evolves very slowly. In order to bridge this gap we have to understand not only our time, but also our future.

In this talk we will discuss:

1. What is space architecture and how can it help us design resilient desirable futures on Earth?
2. How can we keep up with exponential growth and why thinking from first principles can be the key?
3. What is the importance of hindsight, insight and foresight when we think of our built environment as a systematic tool to prepare us for the futures?
