In March 2013, almost 100 leaders from across the Commonwealth
gathered in the UK for CSCLeaders 2013 Part One,
delivered by Common Purpose.
Watch video highlights now, including
speaker sessions, post-session conversations with the speakers, and
daily participant video diaries.
On 16 March a group of 100 exceptional senior leaders drawn from
governments, businesses and NGOs across the 54 countries of the
Commonwealth will gather in London for the first
CSCLeaders, a renewal of the Commonwealth Study
Over 8 days they will receive briefings from global leaders on
global trends, and in small groups will visit different UK cities
to investigate the challenge: How do people from communities
which have spread across the world become bridge-builders in the
global networks of the future?
Through proven Common Purpose techniques and the innovation
process, participants will overcome the inevitable barriers and
start to form into high performing diverse teams that develop
responses to address the challenge which are presented to a Dragons
Den panel, and are then reviewed three months later in very
different environments: Mumbai
The participant group so far is impressive in its seniority,
diversity and just as importantly, the mix: a Presidential adviser
from Malawi, a gold-medalled Australian paralympian, the CEO of a
Malaysian bank, a senior Jamaican diplomat, a poet from Bangladesh,
the CEO of an international NGO, an NHS consultant, the Canadian
Director of a global agricultural firm, a private Prison governor,
a trade unionist from Sierra Leone and a well-known British actor
of Pakistani origin.
You can follow the outcomes on the CSCLeaders
website, Twitter via @CSCLeaders and #CSCLeaders, YouTube and Vimeo.
CSCLeaders is a new partnership between
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh Commonwealth Study Conference (UK
Fund) and Common Purpose.
CSCLeaders will assemble exceptional leaders from
across the Commonwealth to tackle challenges that government,
businesses and society face today and build the relationships
needed by the leaders of tomorrow. In doing so, it will create
smarter, more inspired, enlightened and globally connected
