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, black lives matter, 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:


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


60 peers from different industries and sectors learning together and from one another.


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 shorten the timeline from inspiration to 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. Participants will be provided with access to the world’s most innovative companies from Silicon Valley, China, Africa and Europe 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 a hybrid or virtual organisation.

We will explore how traditional ED&I and Resilience has been challenged by Black Lives Matter, gender diversity, and mental health issues.

  • How do you build a strong, diverse, and inclusive organisational culture?
  • How do you lead?
  • What is the purpose of the office now?
  • 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 sustainability and 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?

Who is Wavelength Connect for?

Wavelength Connect is designed for your best – your change agents, chief enthusiasts, connectors, and doers.

Entire executive teams, groups of leaders drawn from top  talent pools and select individuals from the C-Suite have all previously participated.

Whilst individuals successfully participate, the programme works particularly well when organisations send a small and carefully selected cohort of this profile on Wavelength Connect.


What is the Time Commitment?

Over the course of nine months each individual participant will attend:

10 days of in-person events and immersive visits.

Optional Bolt On: 6 hours of Executive Coaching (four 90 minute sessions).
