Creative Leadership Program

Currently Available in: Amsterdam, Vancouver and Lisbon



Our flagship program brings together groups of creative innovation leaders from across a range of sectors, industries and nationalities. The 6 month part-time training process is designed to accelerate the development of passionate and societally focused leaders looking to realise their ambitions and scale their own enterprise projects.



We look for commercial entrepreneurs, social change leaders and corporate innovation managers that hold a leadership position with significant strategic responsibility. Key characteristics of successful program applicants include a wealth of ideas, an affinity with technology, an entrepreneurial spirit, international experience and a global outlook.


With limited spaces left on our upcoming programs, take the first step of your journey towards becoming the best creative leader you can be today.

Program Elements

No lecturers, but master practitioners working with you as peers. No classrooms, but flexible workspaces, which we like to call our THNK Homes. Our experiential learning process consists of four elements…

Amsterdam is a vibrant, entrepreneurial, international city, with a focus on well-being and personal vitality. Amsterdam provides an ideal location to explore one of our two Challenge topics: how might we create high quality of life in the cities of the future? And how might we empower and enable ourselves to improve our personal health and well-being?





Regularly topping international rankings of urban livability, Vancouver provides a sandbox for exploring the question “What’s next for the planet and for capitalism?” Participants in Vancouver explore two Challenge topics: how might we use our natural resources to ensure long-term viability of our eco-systems? And how might we develop, produce and trade in new ways to create shared value for planet, people and profit?




Lisbon’s identity has always been shaped by water from being an early sea-faring nation to today where water use and management practices are among the best in the world. Lisbon provides the launchpad for exploring themes relating to the “blue planet” and, in particular, how might we ensure we benefit from clean, accessible water on our planet?
