Speaker lineup:

Jide Pinheiro - 5 P’s of Storytelling in Product Design

Storytelling through product design is a way for companies to connect with consumers and create a compelling narrative around a brand or product. By incorporating elements of storytelling into the design process, companies can create products that not only functions well, but also engages customers on an emotional level and creates a sense of connection and loyalty. This can be achieved through the use of design elements such as storytelling through packaging, user interfaces, and branding, as well as incorporating narratives into the product itself. By using storytelling in product design, companies can create a unique and memorable experience for consumers.

Devansh Jain - Discovering Jobs to Be Done: An Interactive Workshop

Understanding your users’ Jobs to be Done is a key part of both acquisition and product design, and can be a powerful tool in stakeholder management too. JTBD helps us uncover people’s real needs and feelings, and the end outcome they are hoping to achieve. You’ll come away from this session with a quick theoretical overview of Jobs to Be Done, and live examples of uncovering them with real users.

Anna Shcherbakova - Food Tech: From a Sharp Knife to C#

Food is a basic need. We are the only species on Earth that cooks food. Some scientists say thanks to that fact we are able to release more energetical and nutritional value from the things we eat, and use this energy to develop our brains. We are the only species that are familiar with such an amount of ingredients. Food has become complicated, with many ways of processing, tools, professions, science, and technologies. How do technologies influence the industry? Join us to have an overview of the food tech industry.
