Meet our Affiliates
Membership is an opportunity to benefit from a close association with the Centre for Leadership Studies, to be part of a community of leadership specialists, in a way that adds real value for business and career development.
Affiliates are a self-organising group; there is the opportunity for Affiliates to get to know each other through CPD events and to create their own networks and relationships which will help them generate possible work opportunities and support for each other.
