Q&A with Emily
Describe your experience at Skypad.
I had attended design thinking classes at Stanford School of Design. Skypad made the difference as it created the space, focus, and community to put the practices of design thinking into action and helped accelerate my key strategic initiative for next year.
How did you like working in four hour focused blocks? Did you feel a change in your productivity?
Skypad work sessions start with meditation, which helped prime us for creative thinking and problem solving. The focused blocks of uninterrupted time helped me make immense progress that I did not think was possible.
What was it like to collaborate with the group? What did you learn?
Participants selected by Skypad had impressive backgrounds and were highly respected in their industries. I would have liked to work more with peers in my industry to get more specific advice and insights instead of general feedback.
What was fun about the trip?
I enjoyed making deep and personal connections with the other Skypad participants. We've stayed connected and involved in the success of everyone's project.
Anything else you’d like to add?
I felt so well taken care of! The Skypad team went above and beyond. The meals, activities, and meditation exercises were so thoughtful. Thanks for creating a rich and immersive environment to play, grow, and achieve.
