GlobalCCU Membership Community

The GlobalCCU Membership Community is a true worldwide community of members interacting online regularly; a convivial circle of peers who learn from each other whatever their differences and activity sectors; a factory for strategists who envision a bright future for Learning and Development without borders in a complex, multipolar, paradoxical, digitized and changing world; a unique growing ecosystem of knowledge, experience, expertise, research-action, co-creation, innovation, recognition and influence at the global scale!

Members from around the world benchmark and go forward with their peers, finding the right solutions to their challenges and hot topics, discovering pioneering topics and new ways of working, enlarging their strategic thinking and making their voices heard

The 2023-2024 GlobalCCU Membership Community programme is now complete. If you are interested in joining a future GlobalCCU programme, please contact us at

How does it work ?

The annual Membership Community includes three activities :

1. Corporate University best practices workshops

CUs learn from CUs

  • They are intensive journeys focused on innovative best innovative practice nuggets from the members, selected by the Membership Community Governance team organised around the topics: People, Business, Culture, Corporate University Strategic & Operational efficiency, Society, Technologies, Ecological environment
  • The purpose is to learn from the experiences of each other, to nurture the strategy and the management of their Corporate University, to evaluate, through discussion and debates, in a trustful atmosphere, the opportunity, or not, to implement these best practices in their own context.
  • Organisation:
    • Four Corporate University best practice workshop online events are organised and hosted virtually by a Corporate University volunteer.
    • An initial questionnaire is sent to the Directors of Corporate Universities / L&D structures and Coordinators to request they propose their best practices they wish to share with their peers.
    • Five topics are chosen for the programme and the schedule is defined by the Membership Community Governance team.
    • Each workshop is prepared and presented by a task force composed of member volunteers from different countries and cultures and coordinated by GlobalCCU.
    • The outcomes of their preparation is shared with all the GlobalCCU Membership members during a four-hour online workshop event.
    • Lessons learnt are shared and communicated with the attendees.

2. I need / I can help working groups for solutions

CUs find solutions with CUs

  • They are groups of exchange that consist of listening to the ‘I need’ subjects shared by owners, analysing the context and then listening to the peers who have a strong experience in similar situations. Together with the other members, the group help to guide the I need owners to the most efficient and pragmatic solution possible and to ways of development. To respond to the I need owners, members with I can help solutions, share their expertise and practices, completed with the guidance of the other members.
  • The purpose is to provide an unmissable workspace and an indispensable source of exchange for the members, beneficiaries and contributors alternatively, to solve true issues or to seize opportunities of development for the benefit of their Company / Organisation. This allows them to gain time and money, thanks to the strategic and pragmatic support of the Community.
  • Organisation:
    • Two ‘I need / I can help’ working groups for solutions are organised and hosted virtually by a Corporate University volunteer.
    • An initial questionnaire allows the Directors of Corporate Universities / L&D structures and coordinators to propose their ‘I need / I can help’ subjects.
    • The final programme is defined collectively by the Membership Governance team.
    • Preparation of each working group is assured by a task force composed of the owner(s) of the issue or opportunity to seize and a GlobalCCU facilitator who defines the objectives and the programme, given a standard format provided by GlobalCCU.
    • The outcomes of their preparation are shared with the GlobalCCU Membership members during a three-hour online workshop event.
    • All attendees play a specific role during the working group events to analyse the context, to challenge the key players and to react on their final proposals.

3. Study group on a topic to be defined with the members

CUs go forward for CUs

  • It is is a cluster of Membership Community members who investigate an innovative topic and its impact on the Corporate University profession from different parts of the world.
  • The purpose is to shape the future of Corporate Universities regarding the topic analysed; to explore its impact on Corporate Universities and L&D structures, what is at stake for them based on the GlobalCCU basis of reference, the advantages and limits across different cultures, geographical locations and activity sectors; identify the best conditions of their creation of value for People, Business, Society and the Planet in this evolving context.
  • Organisation:
    • The team decides on the schedule, agenda and roles needed to reach the objective of the study group, as well as identify potential sources of information and expertise needed from inside the Community.
    • It is possible to create regional sub-groups to bring together analyses and trends in practices of Corporate Universities according to their culture(s).
    • The activity is around qualifying and reviewing literature and practice on the topic analysed, innovation and research and compiling them as a conceptual framework.
    • The study group is run as a light project with regular team meetings for information sharing, brainstorming and documenting.
    • The study group’s work culminates at the end of the annual programme (before the closing event) with the production of a GlobalCCU white paper validated by Annick Renaud-Coulon, shared with all GlobalCCU Community members.

The Membership Community governance team

To maintain its high level of attractiveness and efficiency, the Membership Community is run as follows:

  • One short meeting per quarter is organised with the Corporate University / L&D structures Directors.
  • One meeting per month is organised with the coordinators, who are the main operating interface between the Members of their team and GlobalCCU.
  • The GlobalCCU Membership Community is run full time by a dedicated Manager, Elena Zlobina.
  • Membership Community facilitators and experts lead and facilitate the task forces.
  • Annick Renaud-Coulon provides inspiration for the ‘scientific’ work and impetus, controls the outcomes of the groups before sharing and decides in case of need.
