We want to help entrepreneurial Australians like you have a Day of Note—a day to kickstart your ideas or side hustle. So Samsung and GA have teamed up to create a range of exclusive workshops to help you take your ideas to the next level.


Cult followings don't develop overnight.

Understanding your customer is the key to building a loyal following for your business.

In this session, discover how to flex your empathy muscles to create proto-personas of your customer and their problems. At the end of the workshop, you'll be able to define user problems through generative user research methods and have an arsenal of information-gathering tools at your disposal.

You'll also get hands-on practice conducting efficient user research, develop prototypes for new products/services, and run fast experiments to collect viability data on your product or side-hustle idea.

You will learn how to:

  • Create a proto-persona to inform your research plan.
  • Solicit unbiased information through user interviews.
  • Develop an open-ended, discovery-oriented questionnaire in response to a brief.
  • Translate the results of your interviews into an idea for a potential side hustle.

Head here to see the full Days of Note workshop and events schedule.
