Leading People and Culture for Business Impact Programme

In a world of radical transformation, effective leaders of people and culture are critical to an organisation’s success. But how do we respond to innovation and the changing nature of work? How do we plan to adapt in a world where 98% of roles will be impacted by new technologies? How do we think differently to organize work and build culture? How do we move from where we are to where we need to be?


Refreshed programme for 2020

Exciting changes are coming to our C-Suite programme content and structure for 2020. We are in the process of gathering data and feedback from our customers to help shape these changes, which will bring participants from across our C-Suite programmes together to build an integrated perspective on the work of senior leadership.

Dates for our refreshed programmes are yet to be confirmed, but we can’t wait for you to see our new modules and content.

Why this programme?

This highly experiential programme equips ambitious, mid-career, people-focused professionals with the skills to answer these questions. Participants expand their capability to think strategically and make value-driven business decisions that stack up financially. They develop an enterprise leadership mindset and skills for communicating and collaborating with other business leaders to make change.
