Workshop: Think like a traveler to tell better product stories - Traveltoons

Have you noticed how traveling brings you a high sense of awareness? When you travel, you pay much more attention to details. You notice people's gestures and spot more opportunities when everything feels different and new. This feeling makes you more creative and empathic. But once you're back home, the feeling fades. How can we think like a traveler on a day-to-day basis?

As Marcel Proust said, "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes.” In this workshop, you will learn to experience products and services from the perspective of different users. This will allow you to create more fullfilling experiences for your customers and to satisfy their needs better through an empathic approach.

What will you get?

  • You will learn a series of skills and principles that will inspire you to create empathy around your products and services. 
  • You will receive a set of think like a traveler cards, which will help you to align your offer with different users' needs and test scenarios. 
  • A PDF summary of the workshop's concepts. 
  • Complimentary coffee & tea.
