Ben Broad

Since I can remember, I’ve always loved looking at things in new, inventive ways and this led me to complete an MSc in Philosophy at Edinburgh University before going on to gain experiential training in Design Thinking at the Hasso Plattner Institute (D-School) in Potsdam. Having gone on to build an array of Design Thinking and facilitation experience I crossed paths with consistency in 2019/20 and since joining the team I haven’t looked back.

Combining my international experience helping deliver and facilitate various Design Thinking projects and trainings, with a passion for supporting others to learn, develop and challenges themselves (and their ideas) I am able to surface and grapple with complex problems, reframe obstacles as creative opportunities, and help teams deliver effective, balanced solutions to a wide number of challenges.

With the world changing at such a rapid pace and many ‘wicked problems’ flying around I see a pressing need for us to embrace these challenges, such the climate crisis with optimism, agility, humour and really utilise our creative confidence. Helping organisations to try new ideas or ways of working in order to develop their innovation potential, deliver effective outcomes and gain creative confidence is something that massively inspires me and I see Agile which places people, values and creativity at the centre, as a compelling vehicle to achieve this.

Currently, my main Design Thinking interests lie in: education, future of mobility, innovation culture (especially spatial design) and environmental sustainability. Additionally, through recent project experience over the past year, I’ve developed further interests in strategic, organisational development, product management, and digital marketing.

When I’m not covering a wall or digital whiteboard in post-it notes, I can usually be found out drinking espresso, playing cello or planning which mountain crags I would like to go climbing in next!
