creative leadership program

a transformational experience

THNK is a leading international school of creative leadership. Our creative leadership program is a part-time executive education program for creative leaders who want to realize their full potential and bring significant ideas to market. THNK is not a Business School or a Design School. We take a different approach to leadership, creativity & innovation.

  • We believe in the power of transformative education.
  • We recruit individuals who are leaders in their own right who want to create an even bigger impact as a leader.
  • We offer a unique experience by bringing together 35 participants from across sectors and industries to come up with new insights and solutions to some of the most pressing societal challenges we currently face.
  • Our participants are leaders with truly big ambitions to scale their own projects.

creative leadership program elements

The program consists of four interconnected elements – Forum, QuestChallenge, and Accelerator. Read below about how these components help you to drive innovation in your organization.
