B!G Bites: Join us for some creative thinking this summer!

Introducing B!G Bites, our new series of lunchtime share and learn sessions kicking off on Thursday, July 27th. We are thrilled to offer insights from some members of our extraordinary community, offering lifelong learning to each and every mentor. 

It’s a generous helping of creative thinking, sandwiched between the wisdom of two B!G Idea mentors.

In each session, we’ll tackle a topic related to creative thinking with two of our amazing B!G Idea mentors sharing their experiences.

These snack-sized live events are free to attend and open to anyone who is interested in hearing about different approaches to problem solving. 

Take some time out from the daily grind to hear from a wide range of industry professionals from across Ireland and beyond about how they are using creative thinking to solve problems.

Our first speakers are (drumroll please…) Owen Derby, Principal UX Designer at Workday and Amy McKeogh, CEO, Architect and Creative Director of Fior Studios

In the first of these sessions, the mentors will tell us in just 8 minutes and 8 slides how they have used ideation – the formation of concepts and ideas – in their roles to solve a problem. Each session will focus on a different unique creative skill and how we can ALL use these vital creative skills in our roles.

Life is busy so we are keeping to our usual format of short and sweet.

  • DATE: Thursday, 27th July
  • TIME: 1.15-1.35pm (20 mins)
  • Hosted by: The B!G Idea
  • REGISTRATION: Eventbrite link 


Lifelong learning is something we really value at The B!G Idea and we’re keen to share some of these tips and tricks to build on our student’s wealth of resources supporting them as they progress through the creative process tackling some B!G problems in 2024 and beyond!

So whether you’re in a coworking space in Carlow, working online from your Claremorris garden, an office in Finglas or your kitchen desk in Tivoli, be sure to tune in and join us online for these exciting events. 

Stay tuned too to hear more creative thinking B!G Bites speakers on August 10th, August 24th and September 7th.
