The business landscape is experiencing unprecedented change, and the role of leadership in shaping the future has never been more important. With the need for leaders to mitigate the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, prepare their business for the UK’s departure from the EU and respond to shifting societal expectations and technological progress, now is the time to develop your senior leadership capability.
Our 2021 cohorts will commence from September as face-to-face programmes, meeting all government COVID-secure guidelines. If regulations at the time do not allow for in-person events, we will switch to offer a virtual solution for any programme modules impacted.
Developing leaders with real influence. An experiential, immersive programme with a senior and diverse cohort. Our Executive Programme is designed to develop leaders’ ability to better understand and influence the political and policy environment for their business.
Developing political awareness and influence for business. An interactive programme designed to develop the skills and techniques required to navigate the political and economic context, to manage external stakeholders and consider how business and government can work together to address key societal challenges.
Leveraging the CBI’s core strengths of understanding and influencing the political environment, we design tailor-made sessions for individual organisations. From preparation for Select Committees to latest political and economic context, or influencing strategy, we offer sessions across a range of skills and topic areas. Sessions can be delivered via a range of virtual or blended delivery methods.
Using the insight and knowledge of business challenges gained from our 190,000 members; and of politics and policy gained from our unrivalled access into government, our programmes provide participants with a live grounding in key issues as well as an advanced look at what’s coming down the track.
“It has never been more important for business to understand and participate in the political process. Siemens uses the CBI’s excellent programme every year to support the development of our leadership team. It provides participants with a detailed insight of the policy-making process and excellent opportunities for engaging with key decision-makers and networking with other companies.”
Juergen Maier, CEO, Siemens
“This group has really opened my eyes to issues and challenges facing those diverse businesses within the group – from care homes to defence. I have very much enjoyed the Leadership Programme, the businesses and people that I have met and the countries I have visited.”
