Network Members

Outthinker Networks is a think tank that leverages the power of networks to drive future-oriented, enterprise-level impact.

We are strategists, innovators, and explorers driven to excel in our roles and create a positive impact on our organizations and the world.

The Problem and Applications

Connectivity among talent within an organization is a necessary condition for successful enterprise-wide initiatives and business effectiveness.

Large organizations still struggle to enable peer-to-peer collaboration across silos, resulting in:


  • Siloed and fragmented cultures
  • Unnecessary spending on external consultants and training
  • Constrained innovation
  • Dysfunctional conflict and Disengagement
  • Knowledge loss
  • Wasted human capital
  • Ineffective structures

Our peer-network model has been proven effectively to :

Develop a shared learning culture​

Connect distributed talent

Enable internal innovation

Accelerate transformation efforts

Three distinct advantages of our model

Our model integrates 3 engagement modes and is proven to be:

  • Easily integrated into participants’ flow of work
  • More efficient (through peer-to-peer learning)
  • Recognized by participants and uniquely valuable

We have cultivated a global community of thought-leaders enabling us to deliver:

  • The “best of the best” thought leaders…  not limited by academic institution, consultancy,   or institution
  • Curation informed by a deep understanding of thought leaders’ content and style

Our approach diverges from traditional ones in 4 fundamental ways:

  • Learning approach directly by participant challenges
  • Curation driven by participant needs
  • Frequency that builds trust and intimacy
  • Adaptive to today’s world of rapid change

Our unique peer-to-peer is more efficient and integrates into the flow of work
