Mari Luz in a few words

"Millions saw the apple fall, but only Newton was the one who asked why" - Bernard Baruch

My passion for creativity and curiosity for learning something new has always been there. Having lived, studied, and worked in different cities around Europe, interacting with co-workers, fellow students and friends from around the world, I have been able to truly expand my horizons, both intellectually and culturally. I have drawn inspiration from it, and I have applied it in all of my projects and endeavors throughout my professional life. But it was not until the postgrad program in Human Centered Innovation at h2i that it dawned on me that experiential learning was the direction I wanted to take my professional career in.

Our world changes by the second. Traditional education and logical thinking alone is not enough anymore to cope with an increasingly complex and fast-paced environment, whether in business, politics or technology. The need for creative problem-solving is rising. We need to combine creative thinking and disruptive thinking in order to come up with new and innovative solutions for the world we live in today.

To help organizations, teams, and individuals stay relevant, I design informal learning experiences, host or organise learning events to foster community building, practise engaging learning by doing and use innovative methods such as Design Thinking/Visual Thinking/LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®, POINTS OF YOU® either independently or in collaboration with other experts in creative problem-solving. My mission is to unlock my clients’ full potential by infusing empathy, creativity and rationality into their thinking, allowing them to grow their business and achieve their personal goals.
