Leverage HFS research and analysts’ experience as a sounding board. At ThinkTanks we invite our clients to drive joint problem solving with outside-in perspectives on HFS on specific problem statement. Our ThinkTanks are driven by design thinking principles: observe, research, ideate, and collaborate to make informed decisions. HFS ThinkTanks have two flavours: 3 hour virtual session and 5 hour in-person sessions.
We have a dedicated ThinkTank laboratory in Cambridge (England) for full-day sessions, where customers, suppliers, investors and advisors are invited to participate in joint problem-solving engagements. And yes, we lock all our phones away in a safe, while we moderate the ThinkTank process.
