About the Programme

Our accelerator programme is designed to empower you to reach your own personalised career goals. Once we get to know you and your drives: we will design a programme tailored to help you realise them.

 

The programme kicks off with a UK-based weekend workshop, followed-up by 12 weekly sessions to help consolidate your learning. Sessions are designed by world-class experts in leadership, product design, management, and personal development. 

 

We’re selective about who is right for our programme. Unfortunately, only around 20% of our direct applicants will be offered a place. Successful or not, we will let you know within a week.
