The Thought Expansion Network exists to enable people and organisations to achieve greater success by expanding the way that they think.

The Situation

As our world becomes increasingly connected, it becomes harder for many people to find real meaning and make positive change through realising their purpose across three key areas:

  intra-personal contexts  (courage, fear of change, mindfulness, personal development mind-sets, spiritual well-being)

•   inter-personal contexts  (communication, love, workplace harmony/culture, social interaction)

  extra-personal contexts  (modern trends, global challenges, human rights, social & political issues, technological developments)

TEN is a resource that sits between the critical thinkers on the verge of discovering a new path forward, their next inspired opportunity and those holding onto old ways of doing things for far too long.

The way we think generates our success.

Jonathan MacDonald, Founder of TEN

What is TEN?

The Thought Expansion Network (TEN) is a personal resource, thought consultancy and a managed services team that helps individuals and organisations explore the business they are in and unlock human potential.

TEN is multi-channel platform driven by a group of inspired speakers, catalysts, thought leaders and social activists determined to improve the communities we live in and individuals we touch through speeches, books, workshops and event services. TEN unlocks human potential through connecting how the expansion of thought and positive change are made possible.

We work with curious, purpose-driven people and organisations who share the belief that there is no limit to what we are capable of when we truly focus and elevate the way we think.

Leading thinkers

We are philosophers, inventors, athletes, martial artists, parents, poets, cooks and illustrators with infectious curiosity.

How we Work

The Thought Expansion Network was created to connect elevated thought and potential with success. Established in 2013 by Jonathan MacDonald, and subsequently evolved along with his business partner Miriam Staley, TEN combines years of personal development, corporate change management and executive leadership experience to expand how people and organisations innovate and grow exponentially.

Wherever TEN thought leaders are present, be it on stage, at a dinner table or leading a masterclass, they are challenging the status quo to change business as usual into meaningful outcomes.

The business of thought expansion is a necessity for anyone who desires to change their game, think more strategically and elevate their current position. Once someone realises how to do this, they are empowered and more likely to engage and give more of themselves for bolder success. When we connect the synergies that make the communities and people we care for stronger, we can effectively influence the ways we work, love and play together for positive change in our lives.

TEN is your resource to enable the elevation of your thoughts, expand the value of a new business opportunity, corporate event or multi-day industry conference. Together we are growing the TEN community with your voices and input as to how we leave the world better than we found it. And together we are changing how people define and deliver personal and professional success.

The Mission

How can the highest volume of people be enabled to create change through thought expansion?
