We've been building our diverse community for over ten years. The strength of our Bright Network Academy - 70% are from an ethnic minority, 56% are women and a retention rate of 87% reflects that commitment. 

We work with industry leaders

From Lloyds Banking Group to Bloomberg, EY to Sky, we're working with organisations and sharing best practice with the innovators and pioneers within them to create the change in the workplace we all need to see. 

A better way to learn

We combine real-world projects with group and individual learning frameworks devised by our Chief Learning Architect and former Microsoft trainer and author. Once deployed, we continue to run on-going L&D support and mentoring programmes to complement our consultants placements.
