TALK: 'ECSTASIS, FLOW AND DESIGN CHARACTER: HOW TO APPLY THE NEUROSCIENCE OF PEAK PERFORMANCE IN DESIGN' (2019)
This talk will explore the practices needed to become the best you can be at what you do. It is an exploration into what it takes to be the individual who strives for mastery in human centred design. This talk goes beyond mastering tools and methods of design. It delves deep into developing the essential practices to foster your intuition, to easily enter flow states, to ultimately access your greatest potential. With a touch of neuroscience along the way, you’ll be left with a greater understanding of what conditions you need to create within yourself to facilitate great work.
