I've joined IDEO as an Expert-In-Residence in Shanghai, China

Hello friends, I've moved to Shanghai to join IDEO as an Expert-In-Residence for a few months!

For both of IDEO and I, Design Thinking is a fundamental approach to solving business problems. In particular, the IDEO Shanghai studio and I think that understanding Chinese companies is a window to the world. And most importantly, we both care deeply about putting humans at the center of systems.

The nature of living the lives that we do is that there is always a slice of serendipity involved in how we move in the world. And somehow I, along with the 31 other people who work in this studio, have been magically brought to Shanghai from different walks of life.

So if you're in Shanghai this Thurs. Jan. 8, come by for a happy hour drink at 5pm to meet the all the wonderful people at IDEO and for them to meet you. The Studio is hosting the gathering to welcome me and to bid farewell to the out-going resident, Lu Guo. 

Please do come because it would make me so happy to think that I can gather all of the amazing people I know and friends of friends in Shanghai into one space just to connect and to see what possibilities could emerge from serendipity and openness to the new! 

So for the next few months, I’ll be posting lots of my observations on instagram under the tag #triciainchina (cross posting to my blog).

Please feel free to bring your friends or family. And if you can't come - you know I always love meeting new folks in China so feel free to tell your lovely friends in China to come!

I look forward to seeing you!
