ThinkPod


We want to enable students to make a meaningful impact on the local community. ThinkPod allows groups of students from diverse faculty backgrounds to work on a semester-long project provided by a Social Change Organisation e.g. charity, social enterprise, socially conscious business. 

Weekly skills workshops and mentorship throughout the project will ensure that there is plenty of support for our consultants t0:

  • Break down the issues
  • Divine recommendations
  • Drafting a report on the analysis and results
  • Deliver a concise and professional presentation for the client on the teams recommendations for them

This will help their organisation overcome a particular problem, or give them the information to start a new venture.

Why should you apply to become a ThinkPod Consultant?

Participating students gain practical project/consulting experience and develop their skills and their passion for social change, and create meaningful change in their community.

The ThinkPod Consulting project allows students to make a tangible impact in the community through the consulting projects they work on.

We don’t expect everyone to know anything about project work/consulting. The ThinkPod programme is a great introduction to how working in the real world will be. University has an emphasis on the theoretical. Even with assignments, there are in-built safety nets in the form of tutorials, lecturer office hours and platforms like piazza through which to direct questions. The ThinkPod consulting experience mirrors the real world in that each team will do their own research, come up with appropriate assumptions (if need be), and be able to reason their recommendations where there is no “correct” solution. 

You will collaborate and work alongside students who share a desire to not let their university commitments get in the away of making a tangible impact in the community.
