#7:01 AM Waking up, showers, preparations, then breakfast.. there was a storm during the night so everyone looks kinda sleepy.
#8:32 AM Leaving for the summer school, today we were adventurous and took bus 102 instead of 103 😀
#9:02 AM Now, vote! Should we go to play mini-golf after the company visit or not? What about the weather? Decisions, decisions..
#9:05 AM Risto presented himself and the Service Design workshop is about to start. He is a hobby photographer and is going to have an exhibition #snapshot. I think we should go, he also told us about other interesting thing going to happen around the city.. summer in Helsinki is exciting (if it doesn’t rain)!
#9:11 AM No, please! Discussion number 2198212837 on what is innovation. Happily, this one was fast! Risto started with some good examples and is trying to provoke us to think, I like him, this is how you should interact with the audience! We talked about value proposition and how you should fail fast in order to succeed sooner. I also liked the example that people don’t need 4 inches drill, they need 4 inches hole.
#11:06 AM We started discussing different ads and their structure – picture, headline, copyright.. how people read from top to bottom and how important it is to be specific – who is your customer, what are you offering and why and so on.. we did an ad for our idea about gamification and we focused on bar owners as target customers.
Here is our master piece:
#12:22 AM The second part of the workshop is over, the whole group was very pleased with what we did and how we interacted with Risto. Now, time for lunch and a visit to Multitouch 🙂
#02:04 PM Trip to the company like a boss, private bus, EIT rules :)) Singing happy bday Anca and playing poker during the trip. Multitouch is an amazing company, be sure to check it out! I love it when we actually meet people that have done something meaningful, not only know the stuff on theory. We played with lots of stuff, asked questions, it’s good to visit places like this and gain motivation.
#04:03 PM Time for mini-golf! it’s sunny outside and we made some photos. The game is fun but it bored me quite fast.. afterwards an hour by the beach.
#07:08 PM Hotel, a bit of a rest, dinner and who knows afterwards.. happy bday Anca, again! 🙂
