This is an IDF Local Group meet-up

  • Attendance is free
  • You do not have to be a member of the IDF to attend

What are Local Groups?

IDF Local Groups will expand your local career network - whether you are interested in learning new skills, looking for new job opportunities, new clients for your company, or a great new dedicated employee.

An IDF Local Group is a group of people who are just as passionate about design as you are. Each Local Group holds physical meetings and the agenda is to get inspired, discuss, have fun, learn and improve your career. Meetings take place in a relaxed and fun atmosphere at a local cafe, an office building, or an auditorium depending on the agenda for the meeting. For each Local Group there is also an online Local Group so you can stay in touch and help update each other on local events.

Meet-up description

Please kindly ensure you RVSP on the meetup page if you plan to attend :)



Have you ever tried to start something from scratch, like baking bread before it existed without a recipe?

The answer is probably no!

Entrepreneurs often have that light bulb moment in their head, but have to start from nothing when creating a product or service to differentiate from an ever increasingly saturated market. Designers on the other hand typically spend most of their time on existing projects, never seeing an idea from inception until they're in a position of seniority, potentially many years down the line.

Well during this workshop, Chuck will show you his layman's approach to developing completely new propositions from the ground up, with a designer's lens, that could turn into viable start-up businesses. Interested?


6.00pm – doors open, we’ll have pizza, beer and soft drinks
6.25pm to approx. 7.15pm – Chuck will kick off his talk, followed by a workshop

Hope to see you there!

6 IDF members (and some non-members) are attending:
