Are you a leader of an impact-led business with the ambition to enhance your skills and scale your business and impact? Our flagship support programme, Ambitions 2024: Supporting Leaders, Building Growth is kindly supported by the Postcode Innovation Trust.

Our key leadership programme is back

Following the success of previous years' Ambitions 2024: Supporting Leaders, Building Growth, our specifically tailored leadership programme, is now accepting applications for its May cohort (starting Thursday 9 and Friday 10 May).

The Ambitions 2024 Programme is made up of two cohorts - Step Up and Scale Up. Using this approach has allowed us to reach both more established Scottish organisations and those organisations at an earlier stage of their journey – but that are by no means less ambitious!

As before, the programme will host a broad range of expert speakers, facilitating strategy and operations masterclasses on topics including finance, marketing, customer insights, story-telling and impact. This will be complemented by a range of core learning topics and group discussions, led by programme facilitator and SIS Associate, Rachael Brown.  The Ambitions sessions will be weekly 90-minute sessions from Thursday 9 May (Step Up) and Friday 10 May (Scale Up) and will run for 16 weeks. 

Be ready to be challenged, be ready to get your mind blown away with the depth of conversation and the knowledge and experience shared in the room, be ready to get stronger, to follow through and to win!
