Trainer: Jelisaveta Ilić
I have become a trainer in 2016. My passion for training led me to deliver sessions on many events round the world, including leadership-oriented sessions, Train-the-trainer programs, and various professional occasions in companies I have worked for.
The first session I delivered on design thinking was in May 2016, at a leadership-oriented event in Zagreb, Croatia, when we have used the methodology to solve internal problems in our association. The perspective of focusing on the problem, rather on the solution, changing the perspective, and using our creative confidence, brought many interesting solutions to the table. Since then, the topics about creativity, innovation, and design thinking were the focus of my research. I have delivered several design thinking sessions with the aim to empower young people to solve community issues with the use of technology. The results were amazing: the “PAWssible” app used to find missing pets or “ecoLOG” app used to log the amount of garbage in the bins. My goal is to introduce design thinking to technical faculties and empower professors and students to use it more and thus, combine their creativity with technical knowledge. I am a huge fan of Stanford’s d.school methodology and have been reading and attending many books and courses on this topic.
