The Caribbean-Canada Emerging Leaders’ Dialogue (CCELD) 2015 pairs leaders from different countries, across labor, business, government, NGO’s and civil society for two weeks. The participants break into small groups to meet with leaders in communities, workplaces and institutions to discuss challenges, systems and solutions. This dynamic process of building relationships, accommodating different perspectives and values, and forging common ground strengthens the participants’ ability to lead.

The first Commonwealth Study Conference held in the UK in 1956 was, in the words of its founder HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh "an extraordinary experiment". It set out to provide an opportunity for people from all over the Commonwealth and all walks of life to leave behind their usual roles and, with a diverse group of people, examine the relationship between industry and the community around it. The purpose was not to produce high sounding resolutions and weighty conclusions but to challenge the participants' assumptions and prejudices; to give them the chance to examine real situations and the issues arising from the interaction of businesses, their employees and the communities in which they operated. The members were, at Prince Philip's insistence, to be "people who appeared likely to be in the next generations of leaders so that when the time came for them to take important decisions they would have the benefit of what they had discovered on the Study Conference to help them".
