A Digital ThinkIn with Jon Ronson A Digital ThinkIn with Jon Ronson – Tortoise

A Digital ThinkIn with Jon Ronson

Monday 20 April 2020

Duration: 6:30PM – 7:30PM

Status: Completed

Tortoise and Kite present Jon Ronson


Does your personality type determine how you respond to C-19? Are introverts better suited to coping with isolation? Are extroverts more likely to find new ways to socialise, or will they be the first to go stir crazy? If how we’re wired affects how we’re coping, what should we do about it – and how might what we learn about ourselves now affect us when the world returns to normal? Award-winning author and screenwriter Jon Ronson joins us for a ThinkIn that draws on all he’s learned about what makes us tick.


This ThinkIn is brought to you by the team at Kite Festival. Following a successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this year, the inaugural festival of ideas and music will now take place June 11-13th 2021. Jon Ronson was due to appear in the Ideas programme at Kite Festival this June.


Chair: Matt d’Ancona, Editor and Partner, Tortoise








How does a digital ThinkIn work?


A digital ThinkIn is like a video conference, hosted by a Tortoise editor, that takes place at the advertised time of the event. Digital ThinkIns are new to Tortoise. Now that our newsroom has closed due to the coronavirus outbreak, we feel it’s more important than ever that we ‘get together’ to talk about the world and what’s going on.


The link to join the conversation will be emailed to you after you have registered for your free ticket to attend. When you click the link, you enter the digital ThinkIn and can join a live conversation from wherever you are in the world.


If you have any questions or get stuck, please read our FAQs, or get in touch with us at memberhelp@tortoisemedia.com








What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?


A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a ‘leader conference’ in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the (virtual) table. It’s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.
