Event description

We're very excited to announce another AirTime Event for teams in the AirTree portfolio on Design Thinking

This workshop will discuss how to: "Leverage analogies / reframing tools to drive ideation against present challenges in design." 

  • Presentation: 4:00-4:45pm
  • Workshop: 4:45-5:30pm
  • Networking drinks: 5:30-6:00pm

We're thrilled to share that two Professor's from Stanford's d.school will lead the presentation and workshop.

Perry Klebahn 

  • Perry is an Adjunct Professor and Director of Executive Education at the d.school
  • He's a seasoned entrepreneur, product designer, CEO and co-founding member of the d.school faculty with over 20 years of experience
  • Perry created a new category of sportswear by way of a high-performance shoe — a snowshoe — for his product design master’s thesis. He went on to found the Atlas Snowshoe Company, which remains the leader in snowshoe design and technology. 
  • Perry sold Atlas and became the head of Sales and Marketing for the clothing brand, Patagonia in 2000. He then went on to be named the CEO of the iconic bag company, Timbuk2 in 2007. 
  • Both opportunities gave him extensive experience in brand turn-around, design and innovation. 
  • In every class, Perry guides his students to look back in order to discover what to do next and works from the unshakeable belief that it’s always possible to see a problem differently.

Jeremy Utley  

  • Jeremy is and Adjunct Professor and Director of Executive Education at the d.school
  • Jeremy's time as a student and a fellow at the d.school showed him that “how” he worked was more important than “what” he did
  • Prior to d.schoool, Jeremy founded a small venture capital fund in Bolivia and as a business development consultant worked with startups as well as companies from the Fortune 500
  • Today, Jeremy is dedicated to helping others along the same path to becoming a designer 
  • He helps people change their deeply-engrained behaviors and discover, as he did, that it is possible for them to make a difference

Stanford d.school 

  • The d.school is a place for explorers and experimenters. A place where people use design to develop their own creative potential
  • The school offers interdisciplinary elective classes for all graduate students at Stanford and focuses on 8 core abilities - Navigate Ambiguity, Learn from Others (People and Contexts), Synthesize Information, Experiment Rapidly, Move Between Concrete and Abstract, Build and Craft Intentionally, Communicate Deliberately, and Design your Design Work
