Wavelength Connect
is our immersive, experiential, executive education programme, focused on The Future of Business

Since 2008, we’ve developed an enviable track record of experiential programmes and global content. We bring all of that global knowledge and access to our Wavelength Connect programme.

Based on our core belief that leaders learn best from leaders, over nine months Wavelength Connect equips each cohort of 60 peers from different sectors and industries, with the insights, connections and energy to tackle the challenges and opportunities facing the world today.

Business models have been upended, the purpose of the office re-invented, the environmental crisis, geo-political instability and the continued rise of China are all challenging the status quo. We are now a digitally native world, connected virtually, but increasingly disconnected on many other levels.

Never has it been tougher to be a leader and the need for a new type of leadership has never been more clear.
Nor has the need for a different kind of leadership programme.

Wavelength Connect is that programme.

How Does Connect Work?

We bring together leaders from worlds that would not normally interact and provide access to the world’s most admired, successful, innovative companies and leaders.

Together we explore the opportunities and challenges in the business landscape today and how to turn those insights and lessons into tangible actions and new networks to ensure your leaders and business thrive now and into the future.

Wavelength Connect is underpinned by three pillars:

Inspiration

From Alibaba and Apple, to Unilever and Xioami: access unparalleled global insights from some of the world’s most progressive organisations.

Connection

60 peers from different industries and sectors forge new connections and learn together and from one another, amplifying collective knowledge and perspectives.

Application

Peer Working Groups, dedicated workshops and optional Executive Coaching sessions are at the heart of the experiential applied learning model. They draw out key insights, and shape inspiration into tangible application.

Leaders we've inspired on Wavelength Connect

What's the Focus of Connect?

The principal theme of Connect is The Future of Business. We will explore this topic in depth from four core angles:

Global Perspectives on Innovation & Agility

The pandemic has reinforced the need for every business and every leader to be more agile, innovative, and externally aware. Drawing on our global eco-system from China to Silicon Valley, participants will be provided with access to the world’s most innovative companies from around the world to gain invaluable insights on innovation.

  • What are the new business models, technologies and consumer trends that every executive should be aware of?
  • How do you create and sustain an agile organisation?
  • What does it take to reinvent and reimagine incumbent businesses at speed?

Culture and Future Workforce​

The way we work has changed irrevocably raising questions about how to lead and create great culture in a hybrid or virtual organisation.

We will explore how traditional ED&I has been reframed by BLM and gender diversity, and resilience challenged by mental health issues.

  • How do you create a Great Place to Work culture?
  • How do you lead for a strong, diverse, and inclusive organisational culture?
  • Where should you be looking to recruit the best talent?

The Responsible Organisation

Climate change is the biggest challenge facing humanity right now. We will explore how the world’s leading organisations are putting social and environmental responsibility at the heart of their businesses.

  • What is the role of business in tackling climate change and rising inequality?
  • What does the advent of consumer activism mean?
  • What other societal challenges should business leaders consider?

Personal Leadership

We believe transformation starts with the individual, so at the heart of and running throughout the programme we will hear personal leadership stories from some of the world’s most accomplished and inspirational leaders.

  • How do you remain resilient and resourceful during times of unprecedented change?
  • How do you lead a virtual or hybrid organisation?
  • How do you develop a powerful, relevant personal boardroom network of mentors, provocateurs, and allies?
  • What does it take to lead with and for purpose?

Driving New Connectivity

Peer Working Groups
Small working groups bring together participants from different organisations and sectors designed to forge meaningful connections and engage in collaborative learning, amplifying collective knowledge and perspectives. They are central to our experiential learning model and help draw out key insights and shape inspiration into tangible application.

Coaching to Action Sessions
- Optional Bolt On

Wavelength Connect will make participants think hard about their role as a leader and may challenge some of their assumptions about the way they and their organisation do business. Dedicated individual sessions with an executive coach are ideal for those who value 1:1 time and are designed to help each participant translate the insights and learnings into concrete actions for their organisation.

Wavelength is delighted to partner with the Academy of Executive Coaching (AoEC) to provide a pool of top notch, highly qualified, and experienced executive coaches to help participants make the most of their time on the programme.​

If added, each participant has four 90 minute sessions across the duration of the programme.
