Our Think Tank operates on a subnational level and focuses on challenges facing each locality group and collectively in the North-East region. We aspire to be a practical Think Tank that also initiates action and is considered a “doer” not just a “thinker”. The focus of the Think Tank is on business growth and development; the physical and mental wellbeing of business owners and leaders; and inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs. Our Think Tank is heavily engaged with our research team to drive ethical and solution-focussed rigorous research that aligns with the NetWORK NotWORK core values.

Generate New Ideas

Our Think Tank has no political affiliations and is not a pressure group. The key to our Think Tank is to invite our local community to engage in workshops and participatory research for a unified outcome that is beneficial for all. We are focussed on engaging and creative dissemination strategies from video and animation to poetry and performance art. Do you have a challenge that needs a solution?
