Join over 1,500 innovators for our free Meetup series where you'll learn a new future of work, innovation or design skill in a friendly environment!
We're adding Meetups all the time - covering diverse topics that will help broaden your skillsets and enable you to become truly 't-shaped.'
SkillGym is a community of innovators, designers, and entrepreneurs passionate about exploring the future of work and the skills needed for the modern age.
Each Meetup we'll explore a new skill, tool or mindset in an experiential, hands-on format; more like a workout than a workshop. These are free, casual events for anyone interested in keeping themselves future fit!
Our Meetups collaborate with amazing experts in really interesting topics - best of all, it is an opportunity to meet other like-minded innovators!
We'll be joined by special guest Joel Birch, Founder of The Very Serious Business Co to learn all about a facilitation method that gets people thinking with their hands and explaining what they've built in order to unlock creativity and innovation!
Explore the ways language and framing can impact social change efforts, and share some expert advice for social innovators about how to stay on message and make your messaging and metaphors work for you.
Conducting research to understand the data and context around your challenge is a crucial part of any design process. But too often, research can become a blocker to progress.
The best customer journeys also include powerful and memorable moments: moments where you go above and beyond to surprise and delight your customers!
We explore how systems thinking can help innovators to find the leverage points in systems where the applying the least resources and effort can lead to the biggest impact.
Through a range of leading frameworks and hands-on activities, you'll discover how to carefully craft learning experiences that produce tangible outputs and powerful outcomes for your participants.
Empathising with your customers or clients is key to making sure that you understand the core of the problem at hand, and that your solution works for the people who actually have to use it.
This was a great, interactive, fun introduction to learning design with lots of helpful resources that were shared and even opportunities to meet other people in breakout rooms. Definitely recommended. SOMA's events are always worth joining!
It was so good that I lost track of the time. A very engaging and practical workshop - I'm so glad that I decided to attend! Thank you for all the resources.
Informal and insightful. A very well facilitated learning opportunity which encouraged participation and connection
This workshop was an excellent introduction to customer-centered design thinking for our staff: the perfect balance of theory and practice, and left participants energised to immediately dive into customer experience mapping and service blueprinting within their teams. Sincere thanks for a fun and very productive morning!
