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

We build capability

We help organisations of all shapes and sizes to become more capable in pursuit of their goals.

To do this we focus on what we believe to be the three key drivers of organisational capability — People, Purpose and Partnerships. Whether through our open learning programmes, or tailored consultancy work; we love bringing together creatively-minded groups to work and learn in modern and motivating ways.
