Advanced Design Thinking Masterclass Series
What you'll learn
- Design Thinking
- No pre-requisites for the course
Hi, my name is Daniel Ling.
Back in 2010, I was rejected as a young designer from an organisation who think nothing of design, and resigned without a job. My world came crashing down- but in a space of a year- I picked myself up, started a design company and learned some of the most important skillsets in the 21st century- that made me one of the most sought-after professionals in the industry today.
I faced a problem as a professional back then…
❌ I didn’t give myself opportunities to learn and grow to meet organisational needs
❌ I didn’t know what are the important skillsets that organisations crave for
❌ I thought that my current skillsets are enough for my organisation!
And that’s the reason why I get outcasted and rejected in my first job. Then, I decided to learn Design Thinking, put down everything I know, take a bird’s eye view and restrategize my game.
I'm not here to promise you the world- sell you get-rich-quick schemes and e-commerce seminars-and ask you out of your full-time jobs- you have family to feed.
My job is to get you to thrive and be successful in your full-time jobs with some of the most crucial skills in the 21st century. I want to make passive impact to you and empower you to be the best in your professional work.
3 most important skills (according to Forbes) in the 21st century:
- Critical Thinking (solve problems with solutions)
- Creativity (think outside the box)
- Collaboration (working with others)
All these with DESIGN THINKING. And I tell the whole world about it. I started to run workshops, speak in conferences, and train government professionals. I have then authored a book on COMPLETE DESIGN THINKING GUIDE FOR SUCCESSFUL PROFESSIONALS- and sold worldwide across Amazon, Kino and iTunes.
I have got headhunted twice and now head an Experience Design Team.

?Secret #2 - How to BE A PRO in THINKING OUT OF THE BOX and BE CREATIVE (Even if You are Neither Creative nor Innovative)
