Since 1956 ...

The Commonwealth Leadership Development Conferences, succeeded by The Duke of Edinburgh’s Emerging Leaders' Dialogues, and the CSCLeaders have provided an opportunity for next generation leaders to examine the relationships between industry and community in real life settings, and to be challenged on their assumptions and preconceived notions of what it takes to be a leader.

Today... Leadership Matters!

Next generation leaders from business, labour, public administration and civil society organizations are brought together for an exceptional leadership learning and networking experience:

  • The Emerging Leaders’ Dialogues are held in rotation in the Pacific, Caribbean, Asia and Africa Commonwealth regions in partnership with Australia, Canada, India, Malaysia, and New Zealand.
  • The CSCLeaders Conferences are held each year in the U.K. for more senior leaders drawn from Commonwealth countries.
  • Alumni from all Dialogues and Conferences form a globally connected network to continue leadership learning and support future Dialogues and Conferences.

  • Connect with alumni from past conferences
  • Caribbean-Canada Emerging Leaders Dialogue
  • Emerging Pacific Leaders Dialogue
  • See photos and videos from past conferences
