What's something you'd like to improve at work?

This 1 hour virtual coffee/webinar is for workplace innovators who want to improve happiness and collaboration at work. One of the best ways to do this is to adopt an experimentation practice, and start running your own micro-experiments. This session will be a collaborative discussion - click here to ASK US A QUESTION or do so when you register. We will be compiling your questions for the discussion.

We will present some cases and useful practices to keep in mind and also some free tools you can download and start using right away!

Meet the Fellow Mad Scientists

** Dave Gray @davegray** Dave Gray is a leader and manager with a background in design. He has worked with many of the world’s largest companies, as well as mid-sized businesses, startups, executives and individuals.

He is the founder of XPLANE, a strategic design consultancy, and co-founder of Boardthing, a collaboration platform for distributed teams.

He is the author of two books on design, change and innovation: Gamestorming: A playbook for innovators, rule-breakers and changemakers; and The Connected Company.

His area of focus is the human side of change and innovation, specifically: How can you get people to adopt new ideas? How can you win their hearts and minds? How can you get people, including yourself, to change deeply embedded habits and behaviors? How can you transform a business strategy from a good idea to a living fact in the real world?

I've spent the last 10 years on 4 continents working with teams to build trust, effective communication and do away with policies that inhibit creative flow. I love all things tech and get excited by the words 'digital' and 'disruptive'.


1) Everyone should be trusted to get their work done (why else did you hire them?)

2) Policies should be replaced with guidelines (times change quickly - continuous improvement is essential!)

3) Practicing good communication and trust should be everyones 1st priority - otherwise life is just a bummer :(

Basically, I'm on a mission to support 1,000,000 workplaces to be more digital, more human and more fun.

If you want to know more - talk to me on twitter @humansideoftech, I like discussing more than preaching.
