CEO Programme

The CEO Programme is tailored to CEOs of purpose-led organisations. It develops your leadership skills, supports you in working through a critical and live organisational issue and connects you with a community of peers.  The programme helps you clarify your and your organisation's purpose, and think about how to put it into action within and beyond your organisation.
