Guest Speaker Daniel Flynn co-founder of Thankyou.

Bookings will open in August on TryBooking

Thankyou was born in 2008 in response to the World Water Crisis. At that time, over 900 million people didn't have access to safe drinking water on a daily basis, yet the Australian bottled water industry was worth an estimated $600 million a year. Pretty wild given Aussies can access safe water straight from the tap!

Co-founder Daniel Flynn pulled together a group of friends in Melbourne and together turned an idea to launch a line of bottled water that would fund water projects overseas into a reality. In July 2013  they rebranded as Thankyou, complete with two new ranges: food and body care and today, Thankyou has over 50 products available in 5500 outlets in Australia (including 7 Eleven, Coles and Woolworths). The idea was to take a more holistic approach to combating poverty, with 100% of of profits funding safe water, food and hygiene and sanitation services around the world. In 2016  Thankyou baby was launched, a range of nappies and baby care funding child and maternal health programs around the globe to empower families in need.

Want to read more of the story? In 2016,  they launched a book called ‘Chapter One’ written by co-founder Daniel Flynn, where 100% of the profits go to funding the future of Thankyou. Head to www.thankyou.co/chapterone and pick up your copy!
