expand your Personal awareness of psychology, tech and your fit with opportunities —  and advance your probabilities for success


Today’s tech and societal shifts create opportunities for new and bolder design, new hybrid business models and new social and business style and outcomes. However, this calls for young professionals to gain deeper personal understanding of key aspects earlier — of design, perceptions and people challenges, and broader awareness across disciplines. This, because the Cross-discipline Creative is then able to better leverage today’s amazing access to information, and more easily explore opportunities rapidly with quick sketching, AI, computer design, mock-ups and 3D printing, and better convey and expand your ideas and concepts with others. This expands capabilities for success whether your interests are Art, Food and Entertainment, Software, Tech, Service Business, Engineering, Architecture, Manufacturing, Logistics or other. Advance yourself and your friends as a power base for cross-discipline thinking, innovation and “next level” outcomes.
