The Thinkers Keys are 20 powerful strategies for teaching children to think. Specifically designed to be used by 8 to 14 year-olds, they are placed into two general groups: 1. Purple Keys (the 10 critical thinking strategies). For research, for organising yourself, for the development of action plans, for reflection. 2. Orange Keys (the 10 creative thinking strategies). For generating all-new ideas, for pushing the limits of your creativity, for seeing things very differently.

Thomas Anthony "Tony" Ryan (2 February 1936 – 3 October 2007) was an Irish multi-millionaire, philanthropist and businessman.

He was a founder of Guinness Peat Aviation (GPA) and co-founder of Ryanair with Christy Ryan and Liam Lonergan. Ryanair was believed to be the main source of his wealth in later life: the company is now one of the biggest airlines in Europe and is valued at several billion euro. Tony Ryan was believed to have a personal fortune ranging between €800m and €1bn. He held honorary doctorates from several universities, including Trinity College, Dublin, the National University of Ireland, Galway and the University of Limerick.

Born in Thurles, County Tipperary, Ryan's initial fortune came from GPA, the Commercial Aircraft Sales and Leasing company which he set up in 1975 with $50,000. The company grew to be worth $4 billion at its peak but its value dramatically collapsed in 1992 after the cancellation of its planned IPO. Ryan made €55m from the sale of AerFi (the successor to GPA) in 2000. Ryan was a tax exile who lived in Monte Carlo, but also owned a stud farm near his home in Newmarket, Co. Tipperary. He was the 7th wealthiest individual from Ireland in the Sunday Times Rich List 2007 with €1,503 mn(£1,010 mn).

Ryan over the years helped nurture two successful business protégés - Denis O'Brien and Michael O'Leary - both of whom became multi-millionaires.

Tony Ryan was a generous and innovative funder of University education in Ireland: he donated a marine science institute to NUI Galway in 1993 which was named the Martin Ryan Marine Science Institute in honour of his father, Martin, and showed a great interest in marine science and aquaculture development in the west of Ireland. He also funded The Ryan Academy for Entrepreneurship at Dublin City University.

In 2001, Ryan acquired Castleton Farm from the Van Lennep Family Trust. Ryan renamed it Castleton Lyons and undertook renovations to the property while returning to its original roots as a thoroughbred operation.

At the time of his death he owned 16% of Tiger Airways, a discount carrier based in Singapore which was founded in December 2003.

Ryan, who lived in Ardclough, County Kildare, died on 3 October 2007, aged 71, following an 18-month battle with pancreatic cancer. His eldest son, Cathal, died two months later aged 48 after being diagnosed with cancer. [ [http://www.ireland.com/newspaper/finance/2007/1221/1197997128531.html Irish Times 21/12/2007] ]
