We run leadership development programmes that enable people from different backgrounds, sectors, geographies and generations to work together to solve common problems.
In the process, we give participants the inspiration, skills and connections to become better leaders, both at work and in society.
That’s what all our programmes are designed to deliver: everywhere we run them, anywhere in the world.
Common Purpose exists because the world is messy. We believe that societies thrive when their leaders – all leaders – work together.
Common Purpose is a social enterprise. It isn’t a business, or the charitable arm of a business, or a school.
Our global reach continues to expand rapidly. Common Purpose offices are established across Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Ireland, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey, the UK, with Brazil and the USA following soon. And we can also draw on the resources of our partners and our worldwide network of 50,000 alumni to deliver programmes across the world.
Our independence and track record mean that we have unrivalled convening power. Our alumni and our long-standing relationships with an exceptionally wide range of leaders provide our participants access to organisations, ideas and expertise across the sectors. This gives participants rare insight and first-hand experience.
Now find out how we create a learning experience that sets us apart from other leadership development schemes.
"Common Purpose is quite unique in that it provides a cross-sector platform to engage, empower and inspire people from the private, public and not-for-profit sectors to combine efforts and make cities work better."
