Hosted by University of Lethbridge Agility Program


Are you an aspiring entrepreneur? 

Do you have an idea for a business?

Are you working on an innovative product?

Do you wish more people understood your ideas?

If you answered yes to any or all of the above, then join us as Stephen Dann flies in from Australia's capital, Canberra, to lead a Lego Serious Play workshop designed to help small business owners and early-stage entrepreneurs iterate and improve ideas so they are more likely to succeed.

During the workshop, you will:

  • Learn how to build and improve your business idea
  • Meet local resources available to entrepreneurs
  • Network with, and be inspired by, fellow entrepreneurs

Workshop Model

During this hands-on workshop, you will use LEGO to "build" your business idea through multiple iterations to strengthen your approach. You will be guided through the experience by a certified LEGO Serious Play Facilitator.
