History

CSCLeaders is a partnership between the international leadership development organisation, Common Purpose, and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh's Commonwealth Study Conferences (UK Fund).

The first of the HRH The Duke of Edinburgh's Commonwealth Study Conferences took place in 1956. The objective was "for members to look, listen and learn in the hope that the process will help them to improve the quality of their decision-making when they reach the peaks of their occupations."

The success of the first event, and the enthusiasm of its alumni that others should benefit from the experience, led to the establishment of a Secretariat to enable the continuation of CSC. Since then, ten Commonwealth-wide conferences have been held in the UK, India, Australia, Malaysia, Canada and New Zealand. The Conferences have continued to run approximately every six years, hosted by a different Commonwealth country, most recently India and Malaysia in 2007.

In 2011, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh Commonwealth Study Conferences (UK Fund) went into partnership with Common Purpose, the international leadership development organisation, to develop CSCLeaders - a renewal of these groundbreaking Study Conferences for the Commonwealth of the 21st century.

CSCLeaders represents a departure from the past, whilst maintaining CSC's historical roots of assembling a diverse community of equals.
