Pine & Gilmore's 17th Annual

thinkAbout

September 17 + 28, 2014

Cincinnati, Ohio

 

It's time once again to mark your calendars, thinkAbout alumni! 
 
We're bringing our 17th annual thinkAbout event to Cincinnati, Ohio this coming September 17+18 and we'd love to have you there! 

As an alumnus you are naturally invited, and once again have your chance to find a guest to join you -- entitling you to half off your registration fee. And because it has been so popular, we'll be continuing our expanded incentive program this year -- find two new guests to join you, and we will waive your registration fees entirely!
 
Complete details and online registration (get those Chits ready!) will be announced later this spring, where we will share our plans for how Cincinnati will be the perfect backdrop for our yearly exploration of the Experience Economy. We're well into our planning and promise it will be something unique and special -- as always.
 
For now, hold the dates and start thinking about your guest(s) to join you, because you will not want to miss Pine & Gilmore's annual flagship experience. We are looking forward to seeing you at thinkAbout in Cincinnati this September!

 

 

So what is thinkAbout?

It's not just another conference.  Since 1998, over 800 explorers, practitioners, and evangelists of the Experience Economy have gathered annually at thinkAbout, the flagship public offering of Strategic Horizons LLP.   Over the course of two whirlwind days, executives and managers from across the globe gather to explore, share, interact, and network with others leading the way in the Experience Economy.

Each year, Pine & Gilmore pick a different city which acts as a stage upon which they create a dynamic learning adventure, involving highly interactive technques, intense individual and group participation, and free-form exploration and discovery. 

For the first 13 years of the event, thinkAbout invitations were dispersed far and wide, an open invitation to all those seeking to explore the Experience Economy with other like-minded individuals.   The result?  thinkAbout has become for many their "must-attend" event of the year, an ever-changing intellectual adrenalin shot.

The thinkAbout Chit System

But beginning with the 2011 event, thinkAbout moved to an alumni-only model, with a twist: alumni are allowed to invite a single guest to accompany them to the event.   In order to register for thinkAbout, alumni use a pre-assigned chit number and can then share a "guest chit" number with a colleague.  Those guests become alumni in subsequent years, and the cycle continues!  Thus thinkAbout has now grown organically and socially, with a highly connected network of like-minded individuals. 

Never been to thinkAbout before and want to attend?  Send us an email to thinkAbout@StrategicHorizons.com and we'll see if we can match you with an alumni who can share their Chit Number with you!  (And before you know it, you'll be an alumni too.)

The Strategic Horizons thinkAbout is a high-energy, high-impact experience. Pine & Gilmore personally design and direct each thinkAbout as a series of staged experiences that foster creativity, innovation, learning, and idea exchange.
