Staff from my Department attended a number of Common Purpose Ireland programmes between 2015 and 2018 as part of the Department's focus on leadership development. Common Purpose offered a unique peer-to-peer experiential learning approach which aimed to broaden leadership perspectives, with participants from both the public and private sectors.
