Leadership Learning Network

The Leadership and Learning Network (LLN) is a professional development community focused on leadership and management. It consists of two branches: LLN-Ed, catering to educational leaders such as head teachers and school principals, and LLN-Bs for business leaders. The network aims to help members enhance their knowledge of strategy development and execution. The community convenes annually, providing a platform for members to reflect on leadership practices and generate innovative ideas for improving schools and businesses.

Our mission is to cultivate leadership, management, and organizational capabilities that support positive transformations and innovations in educational and business settings.
