Happy to announce that I’ll be guest speaking at the Service Design Network Netherlands Chapter on the role of Service Design for Innovation & Startups

“Mike will share his experiences working with global Fortune 500 project teams and will locate Service Design as a discipline across the corporate innovation landscape. He will present insights into what intrapreneurial innovation funnels are inherently trying to achieve in terms of ‘knowing’ across entire projects whilst critically-presenting the role service design can optimally play. His article can be found here:”


This event is aimed at two audiences:

  • Service designers currently working in innovation contexts, or those who would like to explore opportunities there
  • Innovators within both corporate and start-up settings who are interested in where and how service design can support their work


This event will be hosted online. Those who register successfully will be emailed a link to participate in the videoconference two days prior to the event. Please join the waitlist if the event fills up, because we may choose a different video conference platform and open more spaces.
