Join John Zeratsky and AdaptiveX at the Official Design Sprint Bootcamp in Toronto!

Back by very popular demand,  John Zeratsky, co-author of the Sprint book and the editor of Sprint Stories returns for a second action-packed, interactive bootcamp where you’ll move through an entire 5-day Design Sprint in one single day! 

John and AdaptiveX partnered last June to bring the (sold out) Official Design Sprint bootcamp to Toronto for the first time ever in Canada. It was an awesome day of learning, laughs, and high-fives!

As a participant, you’ll learn the process, try the exercises, ask questions, build confidence, and get an immersive experience so you can run your own design sprint like a pro. You'll leave with new and powerful ways to do better work, faster. And you’ll have a super fun time doing it!

John is a former design partner at Google Ventures, where he worked with Jake Knapp to develop the Design Sprint process. Since 2011, he has run more than 150 sprints. In 2016, John, Jake and Braden Kowitz published Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days. Sprints caught on like wildfire, and John and Jake have been travelling the globe teaching the sprint process ever since. 


Action is the Name of the Game

There’s nothing passive about this bootcamp. Prepare to jump into a full-participation workshop as John leads you through the five day sprint process in one single day. There will be plenty of activities, and plenty of room for Q&A. You’ll learn by doing, but also by listening to John’s experiences running sprints with huge brands like Slack, Uber Blue Bottle Coffee, Flatiron Health, and so much more.

John will be joined by Michal NalepkaCarlos Oliveira, and Leah Oliveira from AdaptiveX who will be supporting the bootcamp facilitation, and who can also answer questions about sprint experiences and challenges specific to the Canadian business landscape. It will be a well-rounded day!
