What we do
We design experiences for the pivotal moments when learning can’t be left to chance. Learning and impact always come first. We believe learning should be irresistible.
Build from existing company knowledge, research and content OR (in a new research build) based on dynamic research and best practice.
Identify a very clear why behind your learning experience.
Activity & Lesson Build
Build the pivotal activities and lessons to shift mindsets, create solutions, build community, reflect on new company challenges and opportunities to name a few; the possibilities are endless.
Build an online, in-person, or hybrid agenda, based on your context, needs, and clear adult learning science.
Tech Development Build
Build a tech backbone. From existing company learning platform development work to custom tech solutions, we integrate tech in service of the learning purpose not vice versa.
Build a facilitation crew to deliver your learning experience. We can build up your people or work with you to build a new crew for one session or 1,000. You choose.

Todd Rose, The End of Average
Tracy Clark is the founder and CEO of Building Thinkers, a learning and development company based on the outskirts of Austin, Texas. As an avid believer in the power of learning, she brings 15 years of hands-on experience – both in the classroom and as a consultant – to design and facilitate transformational learning experiences where participants are able to gain new perspectives that challenge prior-held notions.
After spending thousands of hours on instructional design, facilitation and strategic consulting across industries, Tracy founded Building Thinkers with the mission to create a learning environment that transcends beyond the traditional onboarding or informational training experiences typically offered. Whether it’s students confined within systems that were built for another time, employees limited by a one size fits all training and development program, or leaders restricted by thinking the well-worn paths are the only way forward, Tracy is committed to helping her clients become active learners by providing inspiration and clarity that helps them chart new courses and ultimately move beyond the challenges they’re facing.
Prior to founding Building Thinkers in 2015, Tracy co-founded an edtech app (Infuse Learning) focused on bringing students to the center of the learning conversation, and was the Director of Professional Learning Initiatives at ProComputing where she launched their professional development department to improve the intersection of technology, pedagogy, and curriculum. She also spent the early part of her career as a bilingual teacher in Texas and Mexico for children with special needs, which has deeply inspired and shaped her views on learning and education.
Tracy graduated from Texas A&M University in 2007 with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Spanish, and earned her Master of Science in Early Childhood (with a focus on children with disabilities) in 2010 from the University of Houston-Clear Lake. She and her husband Jeff have two young sons, and live in the Texas hill country with their two goats and three dogs.
