Join Fresh Thinking Labs

Your unique opportunity to learn from leading companies

As a member of the 2019/20 Fresh Thinking Labs programme, you’ll visit some of Europe’s most innovative companies and meet highly experienced change leaders. Giant companies such as Scania and SMEs such as Dutch special needs cycle manufacturer Van Raam share a commitment to employee empowerment and a culture of innovation – and they’re willing to share their experiences. And you can even opt to use the programme to support your journey to an ILM Level 5 Certificate in Leadership & Management – your learning and reflections from the visits are part of the assessment.

The Programme

We’ve designed an exciting programme offering you the opportunity to learn from practitioners and thought leaders from several countries. Each visit addresses key workplace practices associated with high performance and great places to work, enabling you to share experiences and practical advice with the host companies and the other participants.
