Designing Your Life with Bill Burnett and Dave Evans

  • Commonwealth Club 555 Post Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

Are you ready to design the life you’ve always envisioned in your head? Let Bill Burnett and Dave Evans show you the way! The Stanford professors and New York Times #1 best-selling authors of Designing Your Life have spent years teaching Life Design to Stanford students, and are excited to share their experiences with INFORUM.

Design thinking principles aren’t just for products and space! Bill and Dave will discuss the "many versions of 'you' that exist", teach us all how to think like designers, and help us prototype our way to a more joyful life. Their approach is applicable and fun, much like great design. Be ready to reframe and revamp your creative thinking.

VIP Opportunity! Prior to the conversation, from 5:45-6:45 pm, Bill and Dave will lead an intimate VIP experience: the Life Design Energy Workshop. The workshop will include an energy exercise and mini-Designing Your Life workshop focused on energy, for those who want the opportunity to try out some of Bill and Dave’s techniques for life design firsthand. Tickets are first-come, first-served, very limited and are non-refundable.
