Oscar Venhuis

Co-founder theDesk | Founder Disrupters.Asia

Hong Kong

Oscar Venhuis is the co-founder of theDesk, a co-working space in Asia where he focuses on designing new collaborative experiences and strategies. He has instructed at General Assembly since 2015, providing advice to startups and corporations on how to grow their business. At theDesk Oscar is working closely with the foremost behavioural scientist Dr. Richard Claydon. Together with Dr. Claydon he is exploring the role of collective intelligence and how collaborative practices lead not just to new practical knowledge, but to new abilities to create knowledge. These new abilities will allow future leaders to be more adaptive to disruptive and constant change. By adopting 'collaboration personas (IBM, 2011)', instead of individual ones, Oscar is designing new virtual and physical (blended) collaborative methods that will lead to higher human performance and deeper collective user-experience.

Oscar has previously worked with Nike, Star Wars, Prudential, UBS and teaches remote UXD classes for General Assembly while moving between Hong Kong and China. In his free time he runs Disrupters.Asia, a live webcast exploring different areas of creativity and perspectives from tech to art in Asia.
