TESTIMONIALS FROM THE FIRST BECOME:

‘Become’ is the proof that an online course is NOT second to a physical course. As participants we laughed, we developed ideas together, we trusted each other, we shared personal stories and we got truly connected. And then we got what an intense physical course can’t give you – time to reflection between the sessions and readable and savable post-its! I can’t recommend it enough….


  • Ditte Amskov, Senior Innovation Advisor - Oxfam IBIS


"BECOME has exceeded my expectations. The course is ideal for any designers working on a difficult product launch, personal or professional project. The programme runs over three demanding weeks although it can be combined with your daily job. The constant synergies between the 6 mini design sprints and your own work will prove invaluable. Not only will you have a cohort of very talented link-mind people to share this journey with but also a group industry leaders who will be accompanying you on the journey. I am proud to be a member of the BECOME Fellowship."


  • Santiago Brea - Business Consultant


"Become is pure inspiration but also a very practical course. Guided from the heart, Become has really make a difference in me and I feel that I have the tools to create whatever I put my mind to."

  • Sonia García - Visual Artist and Designer


"The Become program gave me tools and confidence (!) to design transformative experiences, while refocusing my personal transformation!"


  • Sabine Hoffmann, Entrepreneur and Transformer
