Uplevel with us

Our Story

At Choose To Thinq, we believe the world needs all of us to be future relevant.

Being trapped in the Treadmill of Today can slow down growth and adversely affect relevance. CTQ Compounds let individuals take charge of their future relevance by helping them to compound their wisdom and systematically uplevel.

Choose To Thinq started in 2014 to help leaders and growth-minded individuals make future relevance an everyday routine (Read our Future Relevance manifesto). In our team, everyone is a curious mind and an ardent reader! This inclination to read, expose ourselves to new ideas, and build a broad perspective on the world has equipped us with the tools to help leaders, innovators, and creative professionals change their world for the best.
