Sydney Design Thinking Meet Up @ SXSW Sydney

We're stoked SydDT is part of the SXSW Sydney 2023 program. Come join us for some fun conversations with interesting people in and around the design community.

This will be a casual and interactive meetup for anyone interested in design thinking. Together we'll explore some common questions like:
• What is design thinking anyway?
• Why would I use it, what are the benefits?
• How can I use it in my organisation and life?
