d.confestival Master Class

'From innovation expert to master learner. Reframing how to unlock your own mastery in design thinking'

Join us for a high-impact master class with George Kembel, co-founder of Stanford d.school and keynote speaker at the d.confestival.
Oct 11 2022 - 13:00 (GMT+0200)
HPI d-school at UCT Middle Campus


The Hasso Plattner d-school Afrika at the University of Cape Town are the leaders of excellence in design-led thinking on the continent. Our mission is to empower people to use a design-led mindset to enable the creation of human-centered solutions in an ever-changing world.

Our dscover events or series are curated and targeted engagements that aim to foster a continued dialogue about design-led thinking.

This event is associated with the d.confestival.


How do we continue to deepen our creative capacities when we don’t have regular access to a design thinking school or we are working beyond the formal design thinking process?

How do we evolve design thinking to honour our natural and individual creative ways of working?

Join this master class that explores the relationship between our inner life and our outer environment to unlock the power of creative flow.

We will explore ways to bring awareness to our default habits of mind and open ourselves to our own creative wisdom and resilience. We will also look at the role context plays in creative work and how we can shape our external environments to set conditions for creativity to emerge.

Together, the responsibility we take for our inner life and our outer reality set the canvas on which we can walk our own path towards an increasingly intentional life informed by a design led mindset in everything we do.


All those who are interested in self-mastery at any level of their career.

Students, entry-level to middle management to senior and executive management.


George is an entrepreneur, educator and investor. He co-founded and led the Stanford d.school, scaling it from an idea on a napkin to a world-renowned institution for innovation impacting hundreds of millions of lives, generating billions of dollars in economic value and ushering in a wider global design thinking movement. He now works with leaders and investors around the world to reshape the way we design our organisations, technologies and cultures to unlock diverse human capacities, increase adaptability and resilience, accelerate breakthroughs and foster greater creative flourishing at scale.
