Designing Your Life, the bestseller from the founders of the Stanford Life Design Lab and teachers of one of Stanford’s most popular courses of the same name, which has changed so many people’s lives, returns to the how to: Academy. 15 years in development and tried and tested by thousands of people from students to mid-career professionals to retirees, Dave Evans’s step-by-step method teaches people how to think like a designer and build a life to thrive in. In his talk he will show us how the same thinking that created the most amazing technology, products and spaces can be used to design a career and a life that are meaningful, joyful and fulfilling, regardless of who we are or were, what we do or have done for a living, and how young or how old we are.
