Custom Executive Education


Custom interventions are commissioned by organisations in response to a number of different triggers.

Our corporate education solutions are designed to create critical mass of capability within an organisation to effect change. Our clients and future clients are seeking a partner who can work with them at scale, over distributed locations around the world, and who can help them meet the challenges of emergent “big questions” and issues that they are confronting around digitisation, networked economies, global leadership, purpose, values and ethics, transparency, and adaptive challenges.

To deliver to these needs requires not only the right content, but agile and responsive learning designs and processes that deliver value to our clients, and which will have impact at the level of their organisational system and broader “ecosystem”. Our solutions comprise an increasingly diverse set of capabilities – expertise, provocation, research-based insight – but also effective and engaging pedagogy, virtual and blended delivery, and architectures that can support transformational change.
