Creative Leadership Program @Philips Amsterdam

It was a very interesting day again with the team of Creative Leadership program, formerly the DesignersDNA network. (by invitation only, 😉

We get together every 2-3 months with representatives of large corporates like Philips, ABN, AkzoNobel etc. to discuss pressing issues that live inside various corporations.

The guest company can bring forward a specific challenge which we can try start solving with the  group that is present. Every now and then this will bring a day with great new insights, ways to innovate and in general always an exchange of thoughts with like minded people around the subject of design thinking.

We went out into the street to test certain campaign assumptions on complete strangers and came back in with a lot on new input on products, marketing, consumers, price and needs.

A day well spent….

…a beautiful small loft a day…

This building combines two essential esthetiques for me. A loft and a small lot. I like the simple elegance of it. The interior is not quite my taste, but the layout is again simple but elegant.

Definitely in the collection for house options 3-5 years from now.

So this is good news on Blue Monday. It can be done. Trying to move reduction in carbon footprint for an entire, even though small, country. All it takes is political willpower, I imagine.

Really also an alternative for a small country like ourselves, I expect. Must look into if this has even been contemplated in NL and why it has not yet been materialized.
