Mike Stevenson: becoming Thinktastic

Growth and strategy

31 May 2016

Mike Stevenson has led an interesting life, to say the least. Leaving school at 15, he found himself on the streets of London before hauling himself through several hard-working jobs and, ultimately, reinventing himself at his own marketing agency.

After the financial crisis, Mike was again faced with a choice: retire or reinvent once more, and that’s when Thinktastic was born. Mike set about inspiring organisations across the UK, and changing the way they think and work for the better.
