Consultancy
Capability building that's
rooted in business challenges

We partner with organisations across the public and private sector to build capability with purposeful outcomes in mind.

We build capability around the commercial and social challenges of the day; whether equipping leadership teams at Dr. Martens with new behaviours to accelerate growth, or enhancing the capacity of London community groups to deliver grass-roots youth violence initiatives. 

To do this we design tailored learning programmes, and build mission-oriented teams within organisations — working on business challenges alongside external experts, and building rich and transferable capability in the process. Some examples of such partnerships can be found below, and to find out more please contact YCN Director, Nick Defty.

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.
