How we thynk...
We are young, and we want to do what young people do: The best. We value hard work, but we know that not everything goes as planned —it usually is the opposite. We tend to mess up a lot, but we love failure as much as success, it’s just a motivation for more creative approaches.
At Thynk, you do whatever you like, freedom is your best-friend, not pressure. Though sometimes a friend of a friend, challenges may show up and say “hi”, it will be just as awesome as freedom. Because they give you the chance and motivation to think and learn quickly. We’re all young and (maybe) dumb entrepreneurs; we might think we have all the answers—but we definitely don’t. We’re clear with our communication and giving feedback is a continuous process. Besides that, a part of our time and budget is spent on learning; attending workshops, following online courses, and buying books; development is the top priority at Thynk.
Working in a starting organization can be challenging, but it is very exciting at the same time. With us, you wake up each morning not knowing what the day will bring. The event industry is a special industry to be in. It can be very stressful before the event, but it’s an amazing feeling when the event is done. That’s why it has become a routine that we have some drinks and a few laughs after our events.
Become a facilitator!
Our facilitators are really the superstars that make our events so magical. Becoming a facilitator will give you a different experience to our events, and is very rewarding. It will make you much more confident in almost any social setting. You’ll learn how to read body language, make everybody feel comfortable, really understand what other people are saying, how to engage & captivate an audience.
We often go for drinks with all of our facilitators and you'll get access to our very own facilitators course! Ready to become our next superstar? Send us an email or slide into our DMs.
