Programme Overview

Leadership development and networking for your senior leaders

Membership of The Henley Partnership gives organisations a year of cost-effective, practical leadership development and networking that can be used flexibly across senior management.

Unique to Henley Business School, The Henley Partnership is an opportunity for organisations to access a series of themed one-day events that bring together the best business brains and inspiring thinkers from Henley Business School and our wider network.

Event content is organised around six themes identified by members as the most fundamental to their leadership development and organisational success:

  • Innovation
  • Strategy
  • Organisation
  • Leadership
  • Engagement
  • Change

Organisations with annual membership can also opt to take part in the event design process.

Individual focus for development impact

Executives from member organisations create their own development journey through the event series, requesting to attend only those sessions that match their interests and requirements.

During a Henley Partnership event, participants will:

  • Practise new leadership skills in a safe environment
  • Debate topical and challenging business issues
  • Network with senior executives from across a range of industry sectors
  • Access top Henley academics, leadership behaviour specialists and inspiring business leaders
  • Gain practical and behavioural skills with minimal time out of the office.

Who is The Henley Partnership for?

Event participants

Participants are senior managers, directors, and leaders from our member companies; they may decide to attend one event or many, depending on their individual requirements.

Member companies

Our members come from a deliberately diverse range of industry sectors and are generally medium or large organisations.


Flexible learning that suits business requirements and individual development needs

The Henley Partnership combines the networking benefits of an executive open programme with elements of the flexibility and tailoring offered by a traditional custom-designed programme.

Participants will gain an individual development journey with:

• New ways of thinking and acting through access to a series of inspiring speakers at focused events

• The benefits of shared experience by joining a forum to debate critical business issues in confidence

• Fresh perspectives, new ideas, best practice and immediate practical takeaways

• Extensive networking opportunities, with new contacts at each event.

Your organisation will gain:

• A year of cost-effective, practical leadership development that can be used flexibly across senior management (Annual Membership)

• Ongoing support and advice for launching, promoting and administering The Henley Partnership within the organisation

• Networking during planning meetings with other member company representatives

• Option to co-create series content (with Annual Membership) for additional tailoring and relevance to the challenges and needs of your people.

Henley Partnership members also receive 10% discount off the fees of Henley Executive Education Open Programmes.

How it Works

Flexible learning that suits business requirements and individual development needs

Our member organisations use the Partnership events calendar as an integral part of their leadership development and performance review process, and their people benefit from access to a choice of focused, inspiring sessions.

How the Partnership will work for you and your organisation

  • Launch and promotion

We work with our members to launch and promote the events to their people, such as running facilitated sessions to increase awareness, or presenting the event series to a group of potential participants. We offer ongoing support and advice throughout the year.

  • Administration and the ‘nominations process’

Places on events are booked via nominations received (online or by email) and allocated on a first-come first-served basis. Places are limited only by the maximum number per member company per event (usually 1 or 2), but with no overall limit for those with Annual Membership.

During the planning process we discuss the expected size of the participant group for each event. Marketing materials describing session content also show, for each event, a guide number of places available per member company.

Henley and our 'members' work together to define and develop the event series

Representatives from organisations with Annual Membership may opt to be part of the design process for the event series, via:

  • Informal calls and emails throughout the year
  • 1:1 meeting with the Henley team (ad-hoc)
  • Scheduled face-to-face meetings bringing together representatives at Henley Business School, including annual 'kick-off design' and 'launch' meetings.

With a focus on a combination of academic rigour and practical relevance, priority is given to specific events or topics identified as in high demand or urgent need. Whilst we absolutely reflect current trends, we aim to avoid following ‘fads’; preferring to focus on developing crucial capabilities that create most value and improve business performance for the short- and long-term.
