Underpinning IBLF’s programmes and work with business are the concepts of Leadership and Collaboration.
LEADERSHIPThe Leaders Council
The Leaders Council comprises a group of senior figures who debate and explore the big ideas for responsible business in the 21st century - members include current and former CEOs from Coca Cola, Diageo, Infosys and Shell. The Leaders Council is open to the Chair or CEO of companies joining IBLF as members. The Council’s sessions are virtual, small and private, allowing members to talk openly to explore potential solutions to global challenges, and to create real momentum by actioning them through IBLF’s programmes.

Leading Growth – Global Leadership Forums
Leadership Redefined - Thought Leadership and Research
IBLF’s work is informed by thought leadership and research. The IBLF blog provides commentary on topical issues and our Expert Insight video series features dialogue with top global leaders. In early-2012, we published 'Leading Growth at the Tipping Point', an executive briefing from Accenture for IBLF, presenting key insights from interviews with
CEOs and senior executives.
The Partnering Initiative (TPI)
TPI is dedicated to driving widespread and effective collaboration between civil society, government and companies. Visit the official TPI website here.
TPI has worked in over 25 countries to-date and continuously breaks new ground in improving the practice of cross-sector collaboration. The programme's focus areas are:
- To systematise the essential processes of partnering and develop practical tools
- Professional development and capacity-building programmes
- Strategic advice and support across sectors
The Partnership Brokers Association
The Partnership Brokers Association is a spin-off of IBLF’s pioneering work to set standards, promote integrity and professionalise the ‘brokering’ of cross-sector partnerships. Nearly 800 people from 70+ countries are graduates of partnership brokering training, with over 250 brokers professionally accredited. From January 2012, the PBA became an independent professional body running training courses, advocating the use of partnership brokers and gathering evidence for their efficacy.
