For companies

We partner with organisations to develop their talent and leadership capacity to strengthen succession planning.

Access to experts and decision makers

  • Our network and convening power means we can offer a unique development experience.
  • We always try to ensure learning takes place in the field not in the classroom.
  • Meet face to face with the people shaping our external environment.
  • All programmes are delivered by CBI experts and trusted champions from our global network.
  • We use case studies, expert speakers, in-situ learning and simulations to ensure our programmes make a real impact.

Peer networks that remain relevant

  • Past participants hugely value sharing their experience and ideas and leave our programmes with an irreplaceable network of contacts and friends.
  • Groups develop together through peer-peer discussion, mentoring and coaching.
  • Our Alunmi Network offers the opportunity to stay in touch at regular workshops and events.
  • Supported by the London Business School our Alumni Network has access to an ongoing events programme focused on leadership development and discounted rates to CBI’s headline national events.

Diversity guaranteed

  • We ensure each cohort is both diverse and well matched.
  • Entry to our programmes is competitive and applications are approved by a selection panel chaired by the CBI President.
  • CBI is committed to developing a pipeline of ‘board ready’ talent so we purposefully aim to allocate at least 50% of the programme places to female applicants.
