An overview of The Field


Leading digital and purpose-led transformation for a positive and abundant world.

We are a purpose-led organisation, formed in 2017.

The Field is dedicated to equipping leaders and their organisations to navigate our digital future. We do this by curating and delivering transformative learning experiences that develop purpose-led, future-ready leaders and organisations.

There is exponential and radical change in the world of work, and in the way we live, and in the way we relate to each other. It’s largely driven by digital transformation.

We know that across sectors, leaders and their organisations are struggling with the radical pace of change and disruption.

We know that they seek new ideas, and new ways of learning – and that they seek new ways for their organisations to learn.

We know that if this need is well met, the positive impact on business, people, society and the environment can be immense.

That’s what we stand for: supporting leaders globally to develop greater comfort with complexity, helping them to see disruption as opportunity, and making an important positive difference in the way the world works.

At The Field we,

Curate and deliver transformative learning experiences

Develop powerful, purpose-led and future-ready leaders

Enable leaders to navigate challenges, leverage the power of technology, and drive innovation

Encourage leaders to change the world for the better, with exponential impact
