About


We help leaders, teams, and organizations to become resilient and proactive creators of their future – so they can achieve their goals.

After many years in academia, we spent years growing our careers inside startups, the enterprise, and for leading-edge consultancies. Finally, we decided to start our own firm. ThinkWyn is a boutique consultancy focused on helping individuals and organizations become better versions of themselves.




The Ways of Seeing that drive our work.



Strategic Design.

Research. Strategy. Prototyping. Systems Thinking. Co-creation.

We’re focused on crafting how decisions are made. We’re big on bringing together diverse and cross-functional insights to drive change. Strategic Design is a leading-edge approach to problem-solving which positions people and organizations as the creators of their own future.


Organizational Psychology.

Leadership. Organizational Change. Human Behavior.

Leading effectively in today’s dynamic environment requires a human-centered approach. We help business leaders to better understand the needs, interests and drivers of their employees and customers. We help to actualize the statement “our people are our greatest asset.”


Learning & Growth.

Decision-making. Institutional Memory.

At the core of our formal study are continual learning and collaboration. Learning is at the heart of Design and Psychology. We’re interested in the difficult questions like, “How might we create the best conditions to enable learning communities, transparency, and growth mindsets?”
