Dream Workshop

2.5 to 3 hours · 4 to 100 people · people who wants to achieve dreams

A workshop that helps the participants to recognize their skills and build an action plan to reach their wildest dreams.

The workshop consists of an inspirational introduction, a couple of warm-up exercises done in pairs, a canvas for finding your passion and a canvas for building action plan to reach your dreams.

It is based on a workshop hosted by Meri Saarivirta with Startup Sisters in 2013. Participating in that workshop helped me reach my goals and I wanted to start organizing the workshop to enable the same for others.

"I really loved this workshop. You got me thinking about stuff from new perspective." - participant in OuluES Human Accelerator, 2018
"I was little scared to join since I had never tried a workshop about setting goals and dreams. But today was different and I had a lovely experience. I finally have my steps to achieve a goal." - participant in OuluES Human Accelerator, 2018

Validate Your Idea with a Quick Prototype

3 hours · 4 to 20 people · early stage startup founders

A workshop to help early stage (pre product-market fit) startups and entrepreneurs to work on their plan of prototyping to reach customers faster and validate the idea with minimal effort.

The workshop can be customized depending on how far the participating entrepreneurs are with their idea. I have exercises for looking into existing services and reducing them down to bare minimum viable product as well as exercises for making actionable plans and roadmaps for your business.

"Your speech was motivational, just like watching TED talks" - participant from Hatch Incubator, 2018
"The workshop Juhis gave to Hatch Incubator attendees was world class. He has deep understanding of the subject and his knowledge of prototyping compliments his MVP lecture." - Suvi Lehtonen, Chairman of LaureaES, 2018

Programming Workshop

1 to 30 hours · ∞ people · people who want to learn programming

I teach programming to beginners, juniors and non-technical people. Whether you want to learn about how software is made or get a hands-on experience with building web applications, this workshop can be customized to any need.

1-2 hour workshops include a lecture-style introduction into how software is made and how the Internet works.

3-5 hour workshops include a hands-on experience with a small web application.

5+ hour workshops include building a full-ledged application with modern web technologies and deploying that into cloud services so you can show it to your friends online.

"Workshop was well and entertainingly organized. Thank you, it felt like even someone with no previous knowledge understood something." - participant, 2016
