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!Join the Meetup
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!
For this SkillGym, we'll be joined by special guest Kat Clements, Special Projects Coordinator (and previously Manager of Careers & Leadership Development) at Curtin University!
Let's face it - we're all a bit sick of brainstorms. They're often upbeat and exciting, and they leave you feeling energised and accomplished - until you realise that you didn't come up with any practical ideas, and anyway, your boss is just going ahead with what they were already planning regardless.
Whether it's a new app, an updated website, or the biggest viral sensation since Candy Crush, we know you've got a tech idea you've been wanting to test out. The trouble is, prototyping tech solutions is fiddly, time-consuming and expensive.
Gamification is the application of game elements to non-game contexts. It might sound a bit dry, but it's actually a lot of fun to think about how adding reward systems, player progression, competition and narrative to other parts of life can improve our experiences.
Purpose is the new black in business, but it’s already being dangerously misunderstood by company owners the world over. It’s not about brand image, it’s about truth.
In this SkillGym session, Matt from the Skills of the Modern Age team will share his learnings from Kaospilot's Masterclass in Designing and Facilitating Learning Spaces.
Have you heard of the acronym VUCA? Even if you haven't, the concepts are probably familiar - our world is becoming increasingly Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous, and these shifts are demanding a new set of skills so that we're able to find our way in the midst of this constant change.
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.
Facilitators were genuine and authentic, was engaging for the entire two day workshop, was great having real projects to work on and meeting people from those not for profits. I feel like I've learnt frameworks and processes to apply to both my work and personal life :)
Loved the practical, hands-on workshop and the passion with which Nate shared such an interesting and important topic.
This workshop was succinct, to the point and valuable as a working tool that the participant can take and begin applying. Venue was comfortable doughnuts delicious. What more do you need.
Great hands-on virtual workshop with real life examples and fantastic free thinking opportunities while learning new techniques.
"This workshop was an excellent introduction to customer-centered design thinking for our staff. The perfect balance of theory and practice, leaving participants energised to immediately dive into customer experience mapping and service blueprinting within their teams. Sincere thanks for a fun and very productive morning!"
