We bring creatively minded people
together to work and learn

YCN (You Can Now) is a community for people, teams and organisations interested in learning new ways of working and connecting with new people to work with.

We've been curating, connecting and serving our ever-growing community since 2001; with members today ranging from big retailers and governments to eyewear startups and digital consultancies. Working across all kinds of sectors, they’re united in their belief in learning from outside of them, and the value of applying diverse creative thinking to the challenges of the day. We create value for such organisations by understanding their individual commercial, capability and performance goals; and then delivering a rich and collective learning experience that connects them with like-minded partners along the way.
