About CSCLeaders

CSCLeaders is a global leadership programme for 100 exceptional senior leaders selected each year from governments, businesses and NGOs across the 53 countries of the Commonwealth.


The world faces challenges that transcend national boundaries, demanding smarter, more inspired and globally connected leaders.

Now in its fourth year, CSCLeaders assembles exceptional senior leaders from across the Commonwealth to tackle Challenges, build the global relationships and develop the Cultural Intelligence needed by the leaders of tomorrow.  

Each year, CSCLeaders brings together a unique group of high-calibre, talented leaders from different sectors, countries, cultures and backgrounds. Participants include board-level executives from global businesses, Chief Executives, Permanent Secretaries of Governments, Entrepreneurs, Pro-Vice Chancellors and civil society leaders. They all bring very different perspectives from across the Commonwealth, enriching discussions and debate and enabling innovative thinking and game-changing ideas to emerge.

CSCLeaders has run hugely successful programmes not just in the UK but in Commonwealth cities worldwide, broadening participants' horizons by exposing them to challenges and opportunities in diverse places. Previous cities include: London, Oxford, Manchester, Belfast, Glasgow, Bradford, Birmingham, Newcastle, Johannesburg, Mumbai, New Delhi, Ahmedabad, Singapore, Toronto and Nairobi.    

CSCLeaders is a partnership between the international leadership development programme Common Purpose and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh's Commonwealth Study Conferences (UK Fund).
