Building capabilities in
tailored and connected ways

Drawing in expertise from our network we design tailored capability programmes, and consult and facilitate around any strategic business challenge.

Leading organisations partner with YCN to connect with the expertise they need to build capability and solve their most urgent business challenges. We've helped adidas to develop a global creative leadership programme, aligning the personal development of future business leaders to today's business challenges; AB InBev to build a community of digital thought leaders, to motivate mindset change among retailers, AXA to empower its marketing teams to more quickly innovate on digital products and services, and burgeoning retailer Cubitts to strategically define its purpose at a time of rapid growth.

Some examples of our work across tailored training and capability programmes, learning and thought leadership partnerships and broader purpose and strategy consultancy can be found below. To discuss a new challenge or opportunity please contact YCN Director, Nick Defty.
