Inspiring Global Citizens Programme

We Develop the Leaders of Tomorrow

IWC Leadership Programmes

Preparing young changemakers for life in a global economy

Global citizens?

Global citizens are tech-savvy modern leaders who understand the contribution they can make in the world. They’re able to work fluidly across multiple teams to achieve shared goals.

They also have a thirst for knowledge. But while people glean information from all their experiences – in education, at work and at home – global citizenship can’t simply be taught; it must be developed. That’s where we come in.

Developing Leaders

We prepare young people for life within a global economy. We invite them to consider the role that they play at work and in society.

We teach them how to connect the dots and apply their learning to shared societal issues. And we encourage them to share their opinions and explore their own values, whilst working respectfully and harmoniously with others who hold diverse opinions and experiences to theirs.

Broad World View

Our modular programme uses innovative, research-backed models to take participants on a journey of self-discovery and personal growth.

It aims to improve their behaviours, attitudes and communication skills, preparing them to take on unfamiliar challenges. By equipping them with self-awareness, critical thinking and speaking skills, combined with a clear purpose, they become highly effective global citizens.

The Modules

  • Character – Self-awareness and Personal Values

  • Resilience to Change

  • Finding focus - Effective Time Management and Realistic Goal-Setting

  • Influence and Communication – Attitude and Responses to ‘Control Dramas’

  • Structuring a Talk – Research, Preparation and Delivery

  • Identifying Life Purpose

I felt at ease, at home. Your ethos resonated with my goals in life. Especially after the conference I learnt that there is so much more to life.

I picked up so many ideas that changed the way i think about life and my career. Inclusion and diversity are at the heart of what i aspire to do. Attending your events has given me new avenues to think about!
