A network of over 80,000 leaders and rising

Our unique network

Our Common Purpose Alumni community has recently moved to LinkedIn. It is an online space where you can continue your learning and development and connect with other Common Purpose Alumni. On this LinkedIn group, we run a monthly video series called Common Purpose Bitesize. These short, thoughtful videos are designed to get you thinking about your own leadership and discussing your ideas with other alumni around the world. They are a great opportunity to continue learning and interacting with the global Common Purpose network. Click here to request to join the group!’ 

Some will be very senior, experienced leaders across the public, private and NGO sectors, others will be emerging leaders and some will be just finishing university. This breadth and depth makes the network unique.
