Think For Yourself - Before It's Too Late...
Independent Thinking is Unique
More of a network than a company and more of a movement than an organisation, for twenty years Independent Thinking has been making a tangible difference. Working in schools across the UK and further afield, we help young people, teachers, school leaders, parents and others involved in education to focus on what we feel education should be about.
Independent Thinking isn’t a speakers bureau although we have some of the world’s leading educational speakers. It isn’t a consultancy although we are more than happy to work with you to help you become even better. We are not a panel of educational experts because we don’t believe there is such a thing. We are not a publishing company although the Independent Thinking Press has won awards for its ground-breaking education books. And it isn’t a training company because, well, the word ‘training’ comes from the Latin ‘to drag’.
At Independent Thinking, we believe education is about integrity, passion, creativity and professionalism. It’s about doing the right thing, being healthy, being happy, growing and serving. It’s about living up to our motto to ‘To do things no-one does or to do things everyone does but in a way no-one does’. And it’s about having a laugh while you’re doing it.
After all, education is too important to be taken seriously.
Nelson Mandela once wrote that ‘Education is the great engine of personal development’. If that’s true, then you could say we help bring the best out of the engine drivers.
We look forward to working with you in whatever form that takes.
We strive to inform, inspire and shamelessly entertain, because education is too important to be taken seriously.
And we are committed to being unlike any other organisation in our field.
This website shows you what we do, why we do it and who it is doing it.
All being well, it will encourage you to do it too.
Our written mission is:
'To enrich people's lives by changing the way they think - and so to change the world'.
But then, if you're involved in the education of young hearts and minds, that's what you're doing everyday.
