“If you are looking for new and differentiated experiences for your campus, the dream
big workshops are a great jump start for new thinking"

- Jodi Westwater, Compass Group

Dynamik creates real-time hands-on workshops for clients around the globe to “Dream Big” before the onset of project timelines and budgets. Dreaming Big means asking big, “What Could Happen If” questions, like: “What New and Integrated Experiences will move our Campus to a new master plan?” or “How do I integrate broader architectural trends into our campus planning?”

Group Retreat Workshops are for those individuals looking to Dream Big with other companies —before project timelines and budgets constrain the innovation process. Learn from other colleagues best practices, new ideas, and how to collaborate  to most effectively allow iteration and ideas to flow at a faster and more diverse level.




  • We analyze experiences from a human use and emotion level.

  • Different parts of the day are designated for different space needs. This allows for maximum efficiency and innovations.

  • We create a plan on how to maximize real estate by outlining different use scenarios throughout the day.

  • Create a feasible plan and timeline for project ideation and creation



  • Meet other campus and corporate leaders

  • Work in a hands-on innovative and inspired setting creating a new 360-experience roadmap that will maximize your campus planning

  • Work on real case studies and ideas that can be taken back to share with your team



  • Business and Industry Campus Facilities and Workplace Strategists

  • Higher Education Auxiliary Directors and Dining Leadership

  • Senior Living Dining or Operational Directors

  • Foodservice Operators and Project Managers working with forward-thinking clients

  • Retailers looking to create new blended experiences



  • We create your roadmap and groundwork to get a jump on your project.

  • We guide attendees through the process of blending experiences in all front of house areas such as Food and Retail; Student Unions and Residence Halls; Lobby and Common Areas; and Leisure and Lobby Spaces.

  • Attendees receive tools to identify, observe, and analyze low utilization and experience areas on campus before planning any new projects.

The Dreamology Session that our group participated in was not only fun and engaging but provided us the tools to imagine something different for the future of our campus planning. It went beyond food and beverage, and integrated “Life” and how experiences can be designed in the future to integrate all aspects of living including; working, playing, eating, shopping, gathering, learning, and healing. Our group got excited about the higher level out of the box thinking – that then guided them to the food and beverage experiences that envision for the future.

If you are looking for new and differentiated experiences for your campus, the dream big workshops are a great jump start for new thinking to prepare your team. With this hands-on way of ideating, our team was able to move away from our preconceived ideas to new ideas that we can use and implement for our projects.
— Jodi Westwater - Compass Group
The Dream Big Workshop was a great way for our group to think big about the “what ifs” for our development planning. We were able to discuss and iterate ideas in a way that helped us determine a firm plan for success before projects come up. We integrated our data from our customers and other demographic and data in a way that allowed us to create new and different experiences due to the innovative processes from Dynamik’s workshop
