What does a team need to generate inspired, prioritised insights, and ensure consistently high quality deliverables? Studio D takes a holistic approach to sensemaking to bring the best out of the team on fast-paced international research projects.  

In a world of unlimited content and opinion, how to cut through the noise to deliver research that inspires and informs? What are the attributes of successful deliverables? Conversely what undermines the research and hinders propagation?

The masterclass is led by Studio D Founder, Jan Chipchase and draws on his experience of delivering over a hundred projects for multinational corporations, nonprofits and start-ups.
