"The Unthink programme was an inspiring and wonderfully challenging experience for the Grootbos Foundation team. In a strange locked-down time, requiring a sudden adaption and reliance on a more digital world, the ideas, friendships and opportunities unlocked by 'unthinking' together with people who were previously unreachable on the other side of the world, was amazing! The power of sharing the experience with others, pushing ideas, and bouncing off one another, was hugely uplifting; and reminded us that while we may be far apart, and lead different lives, in different countries, our goals and thoughts align for a common good."
A diverse group of participants from 12 different nations. From Olympic gold medalists, to entrepreneurs, students, business talents, HRDs and ex Microsoft board members... Each bringing their personal experiences and ideas to the group, building relationships and a network for life.
Three sessions with three incredible speakers - sharing their stories very openly and vulnerably, answering ANY questions from the participants and on top of that joining our networking sessions after each event to share and connect with all participants even more.
Grootbos Foundation - our charity partner for the Unthink summer programme - came up with a real life challenge for the participants - receiving 75 creative ideas from the group through the facilitated design thinking session, 5 of which being more detailed and ready for Grootbos to apply.
