DLP Case Study: Destination Leaders: Stories and Successes

Collaboration was definitely the greatest influence of the programme and the fact that the Destination Leaders Programme brought us all together into a lasting network.

This case study explores the key insights and motivations of DLP alumni from programme years 1, 2 and 3. Read about why they chose to do the DLP, what they got out of it and what tips they offer for getting the most out the programme.

“The programme gave me what I like to call “destination thinking” which I consider really important: a sense of business thinking but also the business which you represent, your individual contribution to the organisation –you take this with you wherever you go”.
Nancy Riach, The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

DLP Alumni: "A Coalition of the Willing"

Since the launch of the first programme in October 2013, the Destination Leaders Programme has had a significant impact on participants across each cohort year, both professionally and personally. Many DLP alumni from across the first three cohort years are now collaborating together on a diverse range of industry projects and activities. The alumni network continues to build, with regular alumni events and activities, and a private LinkedIn group for alumni to stay in touch and communicate.  Read more about DLP alumni in the full case study.
