February 26: Justin Ferrell to Media City Bergen!
In February, we will have the pleasure of hosting a two-day workshop with Justin Ferrell from Stanford d.school. Justin Ferrell joined the the d.school in 2012 to design and direct its fellowship program, a leadership accelerator for restless experts who want to transform their industries.
The program helps entrepreneurial professionals learn and apply design thinking to organization design, to create and spread large-scale transformations. Since its launch, fellows have designed systems interventions in corporate innovation strategy, international development, ﬁnancial services, legal technology, government workforce collaboration,and many other areas.
A former journalist, Justin worked for seven years at The Washington Post, most recently as the director of digital, mobile and new product design. Also a proliﬁc visual storyteller, Justin designed the investigative series “Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency,” winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting, as well as four other Pulitzer ﬁnalists.
