ProgrammesBuilding capability in continual
and connected ways

Our programmes offer continual ways to bring new skills and thinking into your team, connecting with peers and collaborators in the process.

Organisations of all shapes and sizes gives their teams self-directed access to our open programme of in-person learning, digital platform and supportive central team. Our Leadership Groups enable founders, execs and other senior leaders to build self-awareness and new capabilities among curated groups of peers, while our First Time Leaders accelerator quickly upskills newly promoted managers around six core competencies. And longstanding grassroots programmes like New Now enable our partners to exchange ideas, knowledge and opinion with emerging creative talent around the world

Creatively-driven organisations partner with YCN to continually build capability throughout their teams.

Our open, year-round learning programme brings people from across these organisations together, enriching their mindsets and skillsets, and building their networks too. We take targetted, topic specific sessions into members’ teams at their places of work; and, when required, help our members to connect with the smartest thinking from across our network in relation to specific business challenges.
