Common Purpose – ‘street-wise MBA’ looking for new contributors and participants

News Categories: leaders

International leadership development organisation, Common Purpose, runs cross-boundary courses – often referred to as ‘street-wise MBAs’ in Birmingham and across the UK. The participants consider real-life leadership issues and challenges, through a huge variety of visits, speakers, insights and group work, all within a safe, confidential environment. This enables participants, and contributors, to learn and reflect on their own leadership, but also build new connections, gain insights and connect better with the city and it’s variety of organisations and people. The course also aims to offer excellent ‘value for time’ for time-poor senior people – and this year 97% of participants scored 5 or 6 (out of 6) for Value for Time throughout the 2016 course.

Common Purpose are keen to ensure that they are representing the diverse business community as fully as possible on their next course, so they are looking for new contributors (to either speak on leadership themes and/or host small group visits) or participants. Early applicants will also be able to join a HMP visit in November as well as a Common Purpose alumni event before the course starts in 2017.
