“Rapid prototyping is the process of finding the fastest path to a direct experience of the thing you’re trying to create.” ~Tom Chi

We know how important the design process is – whether you’re bringing a new product or service to the world, or improving upon an existing one. As part of the Annual Gathering, you’ll have the opportunity to join Tom Chi, the former head of Product Experience at Google X, for a special workshop on Rapid Prototyping.

Tom was one of the masterminds behind the design of Google Glass, and will teach hands-on skills for making rapid progress on key challenges in your business.

Space is limited for this workshop, so apply today. If you’d like to learn more about what to expect in this workshop, check out an excerpt and video.
