An annual global leadership programme which assembles 100 exceptional senior leaders selected from government, businesses and NGOs across the 52 countries of the Commonwealth.
CSCLeaders Mumbai: 9-12 October 2017
CSCLeaders London: June 2018
Now in its fifth year, CSCLeaders continues to assemble exceptional, senior leaders from across the Commonwealth to tackle challenges, build the global relationships and develop the Cultural Intelligence needed by the leaders of tomorrow
Join the CSCLeaders 2017 group to be immersed in a vibrant and rapidly developing Commonwealth city. Develop the Cultural Intelligence to be an effective leader in new places where the context is different. Get beneath the skin of the global city of Mumbai and explore how different leaders operate in the Private, Public and NGO sectors and how they cross boundaries to solve complex problems.
Work with CSCLeaders 2018 participants to tackle a global challenge and develop the Cultural Intelligence to collaborate and innovate within an incredibly diverse group. Hear from thought leaders and visit organizations across the city to explore the challenge and different concepts of leadership. Innovate game-changing ideas in response to the Challenge and pitch them to a panel of experts. Previous Challenges include: ‘What could be the future of energy in Commonwealth cities?’ and ‘What makes a city smart?’

CSCLeaders blends online learning with face-to-face experiences in two Commonwealth cities. Online modules allow participants to maximise their face-toface experience. They combine new methods of content delivery with interactive learning. We use visual media, articles and leadership exercises to facilitate structured reflection and group engagement.
"What I have witnessed has been transformational as the individuals overcome assumptions and form into high-performing focused teams, and this is what makes the Commonwealth Study Conferences so special."
The programme comprises of two parts, both of which are outlined below.
Part One is held in the London over six days.
Participants receive high level briefings followed by small group study tours to explore the Challenge and concepts of leadership.
The group reconvenes to share learning and develop practical proposals in response to the Challenge.
Part Two is an opportunity to address the challenge from the context of a different Commonwealth city, reconnect with each other and build on leadership learning developed in Part One.
Alumni are also invited to Part Two to refresh their learning and expand their global networks.
"A vital opportunity for experienced leaders to engage with a global network of talented leaders across the Commonwealth."
