Hintsa Talks 2020

Science. Stories. Change.

We all have it in us to perform well – at work and at home. Yet, the demands of modern life can make that goal feel distant. In 2020, we go inside the mind of the modern employee. What does it take to perform sustainably? Join Hintsa Talks to explore 6 themes – for better life, and better performance.

What are Hintsa Talks?

  • Like an interactive TED-talk: Hintsa Talks are interactive live events streamed online. Miss the live event? Don’t worry, the recordings are available all year.
  • Science, made simple: Our experts present the topics and scientific evidence. Then our coaches and clients bring it to life and make it concrete: What have others done? What could it mean for you?
  • Behavioral change: It’s not just talk. Throughout the year, we provide support for participants to put what they learn into practice. Before and after each Hintsa Talk, people get tools and tips for actually walking the talk.

How to sign up?

  • Reach out to us: To get your organisation signed up and started, fill in the contact form at the bottom of this page and let’s have a chat!
  • Minimum hassle: After signing up, we handle the grunt: reminders, marketing, follow-up. As your company’s representative, all you need to do it send your employees a link so they can join the live Hintsa Talks.
  • Work across time zones? The recordings are available for everyone after the live session. But if your company wants multiple live events, don’t hesitate to ask.
