We design and tailored capability building programmes to support specific business objectives, drawing in expertise from across our network.

Creatively-driven organisations like adidas, Secret Escapes, Dr Martens and WeTransfer partner with YCN to build capabilities among their teams around their important business objectives; and in motivating, meaningful and modern ways.

We design and deliver learning experiences that combine physical and digital content, create connections with other-like minded people organisations and that fit the high-expectations of modern minds. Where relevant we can overlay what's tailored with content in our core learning programme to further enrich the experience.

Some examples of tailored programmes are provided below, with fuller examples of these and other available in the Consultancy section of the website.

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.
