The Secret Laboratory

Design and pitch the perfect Cyber-Assistant in this Sci-Fi theme workshop. Create a compelling narrative for your design, improve your presentation style and understand how to engage your audience and persuade them

Course Outline

In the first phase of this workshop you’ll be collaborating on a design based on a specification by the client. You’ll have the next generation of technology at your disposal so the sky’s the limit but can you work cohesively on the design to create something not that only meets the spec but also anticipates the needs of the end user.

In the second phase you’ll be constructing a presentation that makes a compelling case for your design; not only explaining the features but highlighting benefits and making a clear connection between the product and the end user.

Finally you’ll be delivering your design as a team. You’ll be expected to both sell the product and also demonstrate it in a concise and clear manner.


  • Develop your collaboration and delegation skills
  • Make wise choices about what information should be shared and why
  • Create a narrative that puts end users at the heart of the design
  • Put key benefits ahead of all features, and select them depending on market sectors.
