Customised work

We can tailor programmes for a variety of organisations: from the private sector, to universities, to foundations.

Since we began running our experiential leadership development programmes in 1989, we have always been very happy to customise individual, bespoke programmes for organisations of all kinds. Each of these programmes is tailored to a specific need, to a specific brief from the commissioning organisation.

All our customised programmes use the same experiential learning techniques we have developed over the years and across many geographies; and all benefit from our unrivalled convening power.

We deliver customised work for commercial organisations through our trading subsidiary, Common Purpose Global Customised, which covenants all profits to the Common Purpose Charitable Trust.

We also offer customised leadership programmes for foundations, multi-lateral organisations, governments and the private sector on their social initiatives.

We are experiencing a growing demand from universities, business schools, student associations and societies, all of which are looking for customised programmes to complement their own courses. We can add more practical, skills-based development, real-life context and immersion experiences for their students. Employers too increasingly request customised leadership development programmes as part of their graduate recruitment strategy or induction process.

“We chose Common Purpose to deliver part of our high potential leadership talent programme because we wanted to develop the strategic capabilities of this group. Common Purpose achieved this and more. The feedback we received far exceeded our expectations.”
