Virtual learning
that really works

Through remote, social approaches, we help our partners' teams to stay connected and learning together — wherever they're working from.

Established in 2001, YCN (You Can Now) is an award-winning learning network. We partner with people-focussed organisations of all shapes and sizes — from FTSE 100 firms to burgeoning tech stars, sensational retailers to amazing charities; enriching their learning cultures with highly-effective, social approaches that build capability and boost performance.

As the ongoing coronavirus situation is seeing teams distributed and working remotely, we are supporting our partners' teams with social, accessible and engaging ways to keep working and learning together. More on that here.

Ways we can help

Social programmes

From workshops and talks, to curated peer coaching groups — skills are built as well as networks.

In-house training

Topic specific sessions, tailored to target live challenges and delivered directly to your teams.

Virtual and remote

As your teams become distributed around the world, we'll bring them together with purpose.

Who we work with

We partner with organisations across all kinds of industries where collaboration, curiosity
and an openness to learning from outside of them is welcomed.

"Feels like the antidote to so much unimaginative and unmemorable training”

Sonia Thorel, adidas Group
"So beautifully personalised, with every group I’ve joined hugely engaged”
Laura Corbett, Everyman Cinemas
"The reciprocity ring was mind blowing”
Nicola Robson, Together
