What our clients say about us
Spark Works really helped us bring the principles of Design Thinking to a four day sprint where we redesigned our approach to recruitment. They took the time to understand what we wanted to achieve, did extensive research to support us in thinking about the challenges in new ways, and throughout the week kept challenging us to keep the candidate, not the process at the heart of our thinking. More than that, they are a real pleasure to work with and infused us with an energy and spark that continues to inspire our thinking.

What our clients say about us
Spark Works brought a fresh, out-of-the-box approach to help build on our innovation efforts, and they worked closely with us to ensure the experience they delivered was relevant and customised to our audience. The team is lean, dynamic and brings the Silicon Valley spirit to Zurich. We would welcome the chance to collaborate with Spark Works again.

What our clients say about us
The quality of a design sprint depends on the experience and the confidence of the coaches. The Spark Works team was able to address exactly these requirements. Their competency when guiding through methods and their empathy allowed a successful workshop week for all participants.
