Two-Day Workshop with Javier Verdura, Tesla Motors

The workshop is the inaugural edition of our Creative Leadership Series. This hands-on workshop explores disruptive change that is driven by design through the example of Tesla Motors. Currently in the spotlight as the most successful independent automaker in the electric car market, Tesla challenges the energy infrastructure and the automotive industry as a whole by refusing to accept the status quo of manufacturing, functionality, design, and even the way cars are sold.

Creating disruptive ideas is not the tough part, it’s implementing them. Because disruptive innovations and technologies ruffle feathers and disrupt adjacent businesses and agendas, the greatest challenge lies in putting them into practice and making them part of the norm.

Guided by Javier Verdura, Director of Product Design & Project Management at Tesla Motors, and a team of seasoned ArtCenter educators, participants will practice using creative tools to conceive disruptive ideas and develop strategies to actually implement them in their own professional contexts.

The Audience:

The workshops are tailored to creatives and business leaders: Creatives who want to learn how to approach business problems. And business leaders who want to learn how to facilitate the creative process.

What you will gain by participating:

  • Learn from one of the most inspiring and trending creative personalities with an established reputation in product design.
  • Practice hands-on creative strategies to implement disruptive ideas that will drive your personal career.
  • Earn a certificate for successful completion of this creative hands-on workshop.

About Creative Leadership Series:

The Creative Leadership Series is designed as a premium learning experience for 15 to 20 participants in a two-day format. Thematically, the workshops revolve around creative strategies that are applicable to corporate and institutional environments, as well as to boutique and start-up cultures.

A team of ArtCenter educators will be present at the workshop in Bikini Berlin and participants may benefit from engaging in a dialog with the seasoned educators during lunch or during dinner following the workshop on Friday.

By the end of the two-day-workshop, the participants will be awarded a certificate proving the completion of the executive workshop and is aimed to have an impact on participants’ professional path and portfolio.
