Ok. Wow. I’ve attended many conferences over the last 20 years (you know, since I was 8), and last month, I went to the WorkHuman conference in Arizona. Best. Conference. Ever. And to be in beautiful Arizona and finally have 3 great hair days in a row? Well, this Canadian gal was incredibly happy between May 30th to June 1st!

4 Things I Learned at Harvard

Posted by Natalie Ho on Jun 1, 2017 4:52:15 PM

finally have an excuse to sport a Harvard T-shirt because two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of embarking on a two-day Design Thinking workshop at Harvard University with my colleagues from Cookhouse Lab. The workshop is part of Harvard’s Division of Continuing Education & Professional Development Programs and was led by Dave Power and Jon Campbell.

Attending the Design Thinking workshop was two-fold. On one hand, it provided me with the theoretical knowledge so that I can effectively market the Cookhouse Lab innovation methodology. On the other, it allowed me to experience the practical aspects of Design Thinking so that I can integrate this approach into our internal on-going innovation framework at LOGiQ3 Group.

What Are Major Insurance Themes Across Europe?

Posted by Simon Bell on May 11, 2017 12:15:13 PM

We recently attended the Fleming Life Insurance Forum in Amsterdam. Although this was a LOGiQ3 first, the event has now entered its fifth year. The year's event welcomed a pan-European audience with the 90ish attendees coming from as far afield as Iceland and Sudan (yes, I’m aware that’s not in Europe – but the point is that many came a long way to attend).

We were eager to experience a pan-European conference, and compare the major themes that exist in the industry across the continent with those we see in the UK and North America. Surprisingly, or maybe not for some, many of the themes were consistent across all regions. Find out how below.

How Co-Creation and Open Collaboration Can Drive Insurance Innovation

Posted by Natalie Ho on Mar 24, 2017 12:59:37 PM

Co-creation, the process where companies and consumers work together to create better ideas, products and services has been in practice for many years. Like co-creation, open collaboration is also a means of collectively building better ideas and solutions. However, instead of limiting the input and sharing of ideas, it considers mass contributors, industry peers, and the willingness to openly share the contents that are eventually derived.

Whether companies use traditional means to facilitate their co-creation, such as focus groups and customer surveys, or more modern approaches, such as social media or crowdsourcing, the result is the same. A collection of diverse, insightful data that they wouldn’t have had if they limited the work to the confines of their internal operations.

Why take the road less traveled? [Learnings from DesignThinkers 2016]

Posted by Chris Murumets on Dec 20, 2016 10:09:39 AM

Have you ever decided not to do something because it was too complex? Aka, you decided to avoid the road less traveled? Often the reason for taking the road less traveled is that it is too complicated, too long, too many moving parts. However, I’d argue that taking the road less traveled is actually exactly what we should be doing. Attack the complex, because nobody else is going there.

This kind of mentality really came to light during a recent conference I attended in Toronto. The DesignThinkers Conference hosted by The Association of Registered Graphic Designers. Thinking about the companies I’ve co-founded in the LOGiQ3 Group over the years; LOGiQ3 Corp, APEXA, Cookhouse Lab, I realized that it is exactly what we did and will continue doing. So why is it worth embracing the road less traveled instead of shying away from it?
