A Journey for Change is a leadership development experience with a difference
Join a group of diverse, inspiring leaders to spend time with a number of remarkable social entrepreneurs – individuals using their innovation and entrepreneurial skills to create a better world.
The learnings you'll get from the experience will be rich, unexpected and dynamic. They will come from multiple sources: from the out-of-context environment; from the individuals you'll meet; from your fellow leaders; and from your own personal perspectives.
The results are profound: new actionable ideas for your work; a broadened vision; renewed energy; a fresh sense of the contribution you can make to the world; new life-long friends and colleagues; and a greater connection to your potential as a leader.
Our journeys are designed for accomplished leaders
