Partnerships
We help our partners grow their
people, businesses and networks

We partner with organisations across the public and private sector to build capability around specific challenges and opportunities.

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.

Partner with us

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.
