Access a weekly calendar of talks, classes workshops and other in-person sessions, supported by digital resources and reading.

Membership provides your team with self-directed access to a weekly in-person learning programme, digital platform and the support of a community of like-minded learners. An ongoing relationship with our central team ensures engagement around individual learning goals, participation in the most relevant parts of the programme and the transfer of new techniques and behaviours back to work.

Unlimited access to an ongoing learning programme:

• Talks. Mixing talks, panels and other gatherings where perspectives and inspirations are shared; at the start or end of the day, and over 90 minutes or so.
• Roundtables. These tightly curated two hour sessions enable peer-led, facilitated knowledge sharing around specialisms and topics of common interest.
• Workshops. Delivered over two hours, a half or full day —these sessions bring goups of up to 15 people together for energising sessions around key topics.

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.
