Design Thinking and Innovation Week


Future London Academy

creates week­-long immersive courses for like-minded creative professionals. We believe in practical experiential learning.


A unique programme for creative entrepreneurs, designers and business owners – introducing you to London’s most innovative businesses and uncovering the latest approaches to design thinking and innovation.

Every day will consist of lectures, round tables and visits to the top companies who adopted the human-centered approach, where you will meet the teams behind their latest research and innovation. Some people call our format a ‘design safari’, some say it’s a VIP behind-the-scenes experience or a research trip. During the week you will also explore the latest trends and discoveries in virtual reality, artificial intelligence, sustainability and future of technologies. You will learn about latest approach to creativity, product management and business management – and have the opportunity to ask any questions in an informal atmosphere.

All lectures and workshops will take place in the actual agencies giving participants a better context of the topic. This programme is designed to give you inspiration for your work, to help you get an expert opinion on your current projects, and keep you up-to-date with the latest trends in the industry.

Spud’s Thoughts:

Some of my friends who are big in the design thinking community turned me onto this experience. It’s a 5-day course and they do mention that they have sponsorship opportunities.
