World Business Council for
Leadership Development Case Study
RSVP Design works with clients in a variety of ways, and in a variety of sectors. For some clients, their interest is in accessing a new learning design that might bring their content to life, make it engaging and allow their delegates to build their skills, and begin to apply their knowledge. Others also want us to build the skills of the facilitation team, transferring our learning on how to make the programmes as engaging and effective as possible. Finally others want to take advantage of our support to increase their return on investment on experiential learning tools they have purchased from us – we create a training Workshop that not only looks at their current learning challenges but also assist to build some new creative responses to these, applying our materials in new and more effective ways in more places.
The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) is a CEO-led organization of forward-thinking companies that galvanizes the global business community to create a sustainable future for business, society and the environment. Through its members, the Council applies its respected thought leadership and effective advocacy to generate constructive solutions and take shared action to drive business action on sustainability in the coming decade and beyond. The WBCSD aims to be the leading voice of business that will support companies in scaling up true
value-added business solutions and in creating the conditions where more sustainable companies will succeed and be recognized.
The WBCSD’s Future Leaders Team (FLT) program is a unique professional and leadership development opportunity that aims to mold leaders for the future who understand sustainability challenges and can position these to make strategic decisions.
RSVP Design were invited to make a significant contribution to the 2014 Future Leaders program in 2014. Our learning design specialists, led by Dr. Geoff Cox, worked in partnership with WBCSD and academic staff from the University of Cambridge to create the first residential module of the international 9-month program, for approximately 30 Future Leaders.
