A series of Skills Gyms, for sporting leaders around the world

We partnered with the global sporting giants to design and deliver an 18 month modular, and entirely remote learning experience for high-potential leaders around the world. Centred on a series of immersive and content rich Skills Gyms, the programme connected its participants with an extraordinary bench of bright minds from creative business, to inspire and inform them as they applied their learning to live business challenges.

Bitesize video content, interactive expert led group kick off workshops, live missions and access to YCN coaches for 1-1 support between each Skills Gym.

Some programme highlights

12 Skills Gyms delivered to 60 leaders across 3 cohorts and 5 continents
