Scott Shigeoka

OpenIDEO Community Designer and Storyteller, IDEO

Scott Shigeoka is obsessed with fires and the power they have to bring people together. That’s why, as he explains in his talk, he went on a journey to Iceland, where he spent time studying how fires shaped culture. What he discovered was the importance of understanding people’s dreams and desires – and how this is fundamental in our roles too. He left the audience with an important question: how can community builders give to people in ways that honor both parties? Scott explored this question in depth.
