Contrary to what our social media feed may tell you, there is in fact flesh, blood, brains, and guts behind the mastery of problem solving that is Hink. Whilst they spend much of their waking hours wishing they were little yellow lego men, Jake Murray and Lee Fitzpatrick are the humans that helped get Hink off the ground and ready to help businesses help themselves through creative workshopping.
Let’s say hello.
Name: Jake Murray
Job title: Lord of the Dance / Brain Father of Hink / Workshopper
What do you do at Hink: Run workshops, ask questions, and help businesses identify and solve problems
Favourite quote: “Get off your horse and drink your milk.”
What is a problem people face in your industry that you want to fix: Too many opinions from too many sources with a vested interest in a desired outcome. I want to help bring clarity, not simply sell the next product.
What’s your background/ work experience: Design, BD, Agile PM / Product Development, failed musician and artist
What are the values that drive you: Inquisitiveness, I like asking questions.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working: Shouting at my cats, annoying my wife with incessant ideas, reading books that would kill most people with boredom, making music, and drinking whisky by the fire.
If you could meet any person for dinner, living or dead, who would you pick and why: ooh tough. Either George Orwell, cause I’d love to hear what he thinks about the state of the world. He was rational and had exceptional clarity.
Or Neil Peart, the drummer from Rush. We could talk about music, motorbikes and then have a jam after dinner. One of the most talented musicians to ever grace the planet and most people don’t know who he was.
Which famous actress/actor would you want to play you in the movie about your life: If we’re being completely unrealistic, then Henry Cavil. No man should look that good with a moustache. My wife says young Harrison Ford, but that’s probably just wishful thinking.
What’s your personality type: ENTP-T Debator.
And now let’s see who’s behind door number 2.
Name: Lee Fitzpatrick
Job title: The Coordinator (like Terminator but far more organised)
What do you do at Hink: Mainly I make cups of tea, and listen to country music. I also help businesses find clear, profitable solutions to their biggest problems.
Favourite quote: “If you confuse, You’ll lose.”
What is a problem people face in your industry that you want to fix: Our clients are game changers who have the potential to do incredible things. I want to help them find the clarity and confidence they need to realise this potential.
What’s your background/ work experience: I have spent the past 13 years growing businesses in various sectors, including health & fitness, online retail, construction and food & drink. My passion lies in sparking ideas that can help businesses and their people achieve their full potential. I have been a proactive problem solver and action taken all of my life and I come alive when devising creative solutions that have real word application.
What are the values that drive you: Courage, empathy, responsibility, kindness
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working: Listening to country music, using my creativity, listening to endless podcasts and walking up endless hills.
If you could meet any person for dinner, living or dead, who would you pick and why: The Dalai Lama or Steve Jobs or The Rock. The latter purely because I would want to reenact the peoples elbow in some post dinner wrestling!
Which famous actress/actor would you want to play you in the movie about your life: I have no idea, hmmmm Sylvester Stallone?
What’s your personality type: Advocate INFJ-T
What a line up.
