The Leadership Vanguard

It is a simple truth: we have the resources needed to solve humanity’s greatest challenges. What's lacking is the leadership to apply commercial muscle to make it happen.

The Leadership Vanguard is a year-long acceleration and leadership development programme that brings together senior leaders from global organisations across industries and around the world to collaborate to influence systems and accelerate future-fit business models.
