Culture

Our Values

At Thinkr every success, every challenge, every day is driven by our core values.

Innovation

We empower our teams to broaden their expertise, level up their abilities and present ideas to help businesses reach new heights. We are at our best when we take that thirst for knowledge and drive to innovate and turn it loose on our clients.

Collaboration

We work as a collective from beginning to end to deliver complete strategies and coordinate the many pieces that must come together to execute successfully. From the first brainstorming session in our large open office space to regular client meetings, we practice collaboration at every step of the process.

Creativity

We endeavour to solve problems in unique ways, to push traditional boundaries. Creativity is the driving force behind all our work, from bespoke research and strategies to visually stunning presentations of your brand. Combining our analytical approach and our creative flair is where we thrive.

Competition

From our annual bocce ball tournament and team BBQ cookoff to developing winning strategies for our clients, the competitive spirit is alive and well at Thinkr. Our team pushes hard to be the best at what we do so that you can be too.

Honesty

With each other and our clients, we'll speak up when something doesn't sit right, own up when something isn't working, and admit when we don't know. We're sincere in our desire to do good work, so we tell the truth in our recommendations, feedback and reports.
