What our Clients say...

Richard Mark - Commercial & Strategic Advisor

I like the idea that we can all learn a structured process that can effectively lead to better innovation – design thinking.

I found David’s workshop to be a great hands-on way to learn how to use design thinking to better understand customers/users, challenge assumptions, redefine problems and develop innovative solutions.

David is a natural presenter and teacher who knows his stuff and works hard to make sure that everyone attending the course felt comfortable in sharing their ideas with the group. A great way to learn – highly recommended!

Athula Bogoda - CEO – Silicon Beach Group Ltd

THNK.innovation conducted a comprehensive qualitative research project to help us to get to know our community much better.

David and his team did dig deep beneath the surface to unveil our member’s needs and what they were looking for when joining Silicon Beach. They also processed and visualised their findings and generated tangible suggestions that will allow us to maximise the value of our services for our community now and in the future.

Giving us the strong feeling of knowing and understanding our community members external and internal needs much better, is growing our confidence in providing ongoing and excellent service to all Silicon Beachers.

Mark Cooray - Managing Director – LI Labs

The best part about how Annelou and David are running their workshops is their hands-on
approach. There are no prolonged periods of sitting and listening. We got out of our chairs
early and regularly to experience the design thinking process by doing it straight away.

Especially having the whole workshop series spread out over multiple months allowed us to
apply the techniques straight away to our real-world projects and yield the benefits
immediately. And whenever we did have any questions or needed clarification then Annelou
and David were just one email away to support us.
