The intensives provide the opportunity to learn in a hands-on, small group environment

Delight Conference September 26 - 28, 2016
"We’ve expanded our intensive offerings this year and worked with the intensive presenters to ensure that everyone who wants to attend has that opportunity," said Jeff Cram, conference organizer and Connective DX co-founder.

Delight 2016, an experience design conference organized by Connective DX, recently opened registration for new full-day intensive workshops. The intensives, which are in addition to the two-day Delight conference, offer attendees the chance to do a deep dive into their field or specialty with other thought leaders and experienced professionals.

Attendees of the optional full-day intensives     will spend the day with industry experts in a single focus area: healthcare, digital experience or design leadership:

Radical Collaboration in Healthcare
Led by Matt Templeton, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts

Join this one-day workshop to work on real problems, gaining deep understanding into people’s needs by using Design Thinking out in the wild. Healthcare leaders will facilitate a health-specific design challenge using this human-centered process. By working collaboratively with others from different levels and backgrounds we will identify needs, ideate solutions and test them with users.You will gain an introduction to or a deeper understanding of the Design Thinking process and the challenge. Prior experience is not necessary but it is also welcome. This one-day workshop could lead to future connections and collaborations. This will be fun, fast and insightful. Let’s learn by doing and make something new, together.

Digital Experience Masterclass
Led by the Connective DX team

Digital is rapidly erasing the space between your business and your empowered customers. Organizations that embrace the power of digital will seize new opportunities to grow and differentiate, connect with their customers in more meaningful long-lasting ways, and make an impact in their market space. This class will help activate and accelerate change by arming you with tools and frameworks for sustainable digital success.

Amplifying Creative Collaboration
Led by Denise Jacobs, The Creative Dose and Jessie Shternshus, The Improv Effect

Most companies focus on a team's technical skills, but true success depends on creative collaboration—multiplying each other’s ideas to solve problems. This workshop provides an approach to help teams work like a well-calibrated machine and produce great work together. Participants will take a real-world problem and run through a series of ideation exercises to create and execute on an action plan. You'll learn how to encourage and leverage the aggregate genius of a team.

“Last year we offered an optional healthcare intensive for the first time and it sold out very quickly,” said Jeff Cram, conference organizer and Connective DX co-founder. “As a result of that success we’ve expanded our intensive offerings this year and worked with the intensive presenters to ensure that everyone who wants to attend has that opportunity.”

Early bird rates for Delight are in effect until July 31, so attendees can take advantage of up to $200 off registration with additional discounts available for groups of four or more from the same organization. Attendees are encouraged to register early, as space is limited and the 2015 event sold out with 400+ attendees.
