What is a ThinkIn?

ThinkIns are for Tortoise members and invited guests. Catch up below on some of our recent favourites.

A ThinkIn is not just another panel discussion. It’s a real editorial meeting where your insight and experience can help shape our reporting.


How it works

Book a ticket, and we’ll send you a link to join us online. You can bring a friend.

We’ll invite guests with special expertise, but anyone can speak. Just raise your hand.

A ThinkIn is one hour long. At the end, the editor will summarise what we’ve heard.

What our members are watching
