About The People Space

For leaders. By leaders

The People Space ™ provides quality, lifelong learning in an age of information overload by curating content based on our members’ experiences and needs, and through testing concepts with them. We facilitate the sharing of knowledge through co-creating content with members and partners. 

Our vision is to be the leadership community that advances and promotes excellence in value creation through people. 

In today’s age of information overload, automation, digital transformation and disruptive change to skills and job roles, investing in continuous learning is critical to the success of organisations. As the pace and scale of change accelerates, leaders need to invest in their own development just as much as in that of their employees.

The People Space delivers learning in two ways:

1. Macro-learning through its membership-based learning and development network People Space Leaders providing leaders who create value through people with a secure and vetted environment in which to share real-life challenges and be challenged, learn from peers and authoritative experts, collaborate and co-create a member-centric learning experience and access conceptual and practical learning wherever they are and whenever they want through secure, digital platforms

2. Micro-learning through its open access website The People Space which distils this peer and expert information into bite-sized, shareable content that can be consumed in 10 minutes or less and which helps to fulfil The People Space’s wider Purpose of 'Empowering people leaders everywhere to stay one step ahead in a fast-paced, digitally disruptive world'.
