We have a strategic focus on the changing global context and the risks and opportunities for business
We help senior leaders to understand the scale of change required to address key sustainability challenges, we give them insight into innovative new approaches and responses, and we inspire them to take action.
Our programmes are for senior business executives as well as government and NGO leaders
Our world-class programmes attract senior leaders and decision-makers from many different industries and functions internationally. We select our individual delegates and our organisational clients on the basis of their leadership commitment and their ability to have a significant impact upon their operating context. Bringing diverse groups together is vital to many of our programmes – we create a space to share and foster ideas that cross traditional boundaries and that can deliver impact up and down the value chain.
Our faculty and contributors are leaders in their fields
We select the most appropriate faculty for each individual programme from our exceptional range of Fellows and Senior Associates, many of whom are expert in the changing external context, business strategy, innovation, collaboration, leadership for sustainability or in organisational change. Expert contributors, many from our corporate and strategic partners, as well as academics from the University of Cambridge enrich the learning.
We deliver impact through addressing real business issues
All of our programmes – open, customised, accredited and online – have a strategic and practical approach to developing sustainable business strategies and processes. We support leaders to create strategies for action that address both their current challenges and the necessary scale of ambition. In practical terms, we provide access to the latest evidence, to diverse perspectives and cross-disciplinary thinking, to new business models and innovations, and to decision-making tools and scenarios.
Our programmes are customisable and flexible
Our programmes are fully customisable. They range from tailoring our flagship open programmes for specific audiences, to creating completely bespoke programmes which meet clients’ learning and organisational development needs. Our design team is experienced in needs analysis and Board-level education and training as well as C-suite executive education.
