CSCLeaders brings leaders together to tackle challenges that businesses, governments and society face today and to build the global relationships needed by the leaders of tomorrow.

CSCLeaders is a partnership between the leadership development organisation Common Purpose and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh's Commonwealth Study Conferences (UK Fund).

CSCLeaders has run hugely successful programmes not just in the UK but in Commonwealth cities worldwide, broadening participants' horizons by exposing them to challenges and opportunities in diverse places. The next CSCLeaders programme will start in Manchester and Glasgow with particpants travelling to another Commonwealth city for the second half of the programme.

"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 structure

The programme comprises of two parts, both of which are outlined below.

Part one

Part One is held in the UK over six days. The next programme will take place in Manchester and Glasgow.

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

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.
