Our guide to London & life for the doers, thinkers & drinkers.

August 22, 2013What have you got planned for the sunny August Bank Holiday?
We have two fantastic events to keep you busy… plus a chance for you to get a free month’s worth of inclusive membership if you fancy adding Notting Hill Carnival to our Bank Holiday calendar! Read on for more details
July 30, 2013Message your fellow members, direct through our website
The sun may have been shining all week, but our developer has been locked in Bob’s dark broom cupboard, working hard to bring you an exciting new way to contact your fellow bobbers – our brand spanking new and fully integrated messaging system.
July 22, 2013We’re through!
Thanks to your votes (and Bob’s, ahem, ‘gentle’ threats against an innocent penguin), Thinking Bob sailed through the Elevator Pitch public vote – we’re now one step closer to investment and we go against the panel in the next round Today. We’ll keep you posted!
June 26, 2013We are all looking for love.
This overwhelming desire in both men and women to find their soulmate has, in this modern world, been a goldmine for both scrupulous and unscrupulous founders of the numerous dating websites that the internet has bombarded us with and it is here that I come to the crux of my article – online dating and its catastrophic consequences!
Allow me to provide you with an example…..
June 17, 2013On March 19th we hosted the lovely Elizabeth Gowing – author of the book Travels in Blood and Honey – at Ugli Campus, White City.
This week we have good news – we were able to make a valuable contribution to Elizabeth not only with our £250 bar profits – well drank guys – but with a solution to a problem that was crucial to the future of her and for many non-for-profit organisation – the business of donations.
June 17, 2013Meet new people, use your brain and do something good!
Like many people in our capital, at thinkingbob we also want to do our bit and help worthy good causes; but at the same time we don’t wont to use the loyalty of our members just to get money out of them. We know how frustrating it can be constantly being asked for sponsorship or donations.
This is where Becks, our founder who kicked off her events experience at charities has come up with the thinkingbob alternative. She looked at it from a new perspective to see how else we can give to good causes.
May 30, 2013As a newbie to the Thinking Bob concept, I had a lot of different expectations.
Sure, I had heard and read about the club and its different events, but I was still not certain what I was about to throw myself into. Amongst the clutter of different social clubs and events you can find in London, Thinking Bob stood out to me as a unique club as it focused on connecting people with similar personalities rather than just people with common interests.
May 16, 2013
Surely there are quite a few people who think that a game of rock-paper-scissors doesn’t necessarily stand for a Friday evening well spent. And honestly: Who can blame them? In most cases it probably means that you don’t have enough friends for a game of Monopoly, and the one friend you have is probably a bit odd!
Actually, I was one of those sceptics before I joined thinkingbob – and they proved me wrong… There is a slight chance my opinion is biased due to the fact I won! (and I still find this incredibly awesome), but let’s start from the beginning.
May 10, 2013‘True or false: in 1962, the Dutch killed and ate their Prime Minister.’
How’s that for a conversation starter?
That was exactly the question I was trying to answer on a recent Saturday afternoon, sat at an interactive table with a glass of wine and some very good thai food. Oh, and not forgetting five people I’d met not ten minutes earlier.
The question was part of a conversation late lunch Thinking Bob event and it did indeed start a very interesting conversation.
