roles at THNK for participants

For everyone who has completed the THNK Executive Leadership Program as a participant, there is a rich variety of opportunities to work with THNK. All roles are paid and enable the participant to carry a THNK visiting card.

 

THNK might approach individuals, but in most cases the individual THNK participant proposes opportunities based on her own passion and purpose, expertise, and entrepreneurial vision. The opportunity typically starts with a one on one discussion with one of the THNK Partners (Femke BartelsRajiv Ball, Menno van Dijk, Mark Vernooij or Natasha Bonnevalle), followed by a period of joint exploration and scoping of the opportunity for collaboration. In this, we are particularly keen to foster long-term collaborations between THNK and former participants.
