“Nothing about the experience disappointed. It was a fantastic opportunity to experience all of the usual things you would expect from living and working in a different culture, but it’s so much more than that. It’s a chance to get exposure to a type of communication problem you would never normally come across, to build confidence doing roles that you would never normally get to do, and working with clients who come from a completely different world. It’s impossible not to come back with a renewed appreciation of the value that communications skills can bring to an organisation. It’s often something we underestimate hugely (and undersell!) and if you get the chance to be part of a TIE placement then go – you’ll be surprised at the impact that both it, and you, can have”.

“The whole experience impacted me hugely, changed me, left me feeling stimulated – and connected. I returned with fresh and different eyes. To my New York work and world and life. What I did with the Brazilian charity was just a tiny start. Yet one that left me knowing, no question, I’d used my talents and privileged position to play my part.”

“TIE is a unique way of developing communications professionals (call it ‘extraordinary training’ if you will). TIE nurtured the leadership skills that I needed to progress my career at Leo Burnett. It helped build the confidence in my own abilities and allowed me to do things that I didn’t think I could do. I’m not a strategic planner, or a communications/media planner, yet the placement required that I create a communications campaign from scratch, devise and conduct research, devise a communications strategy (considering all elements of communications rather than just advertising), lead the creative briefing process, plan media and create a comms plan, think about the role of public relations…all without the usual support and advice of my team, my superiors or partner agencies back in the UK.”

TIE is for people who want to move ahead in their roles and at their company. Who want to learn new insights and ways of working in a real-time business environment.
This is not classroom learning. This is real life. It doesn’t get much more raw than this.
This is also for people who want to make a difference with their skills. Who are looking to change the world in some way, and recognize the power of their industry.
In short, if you work the private sector in communications, or finance, or law, or publishing…and the list goes on, and are up for pushing yourself, being a future leader of your industry, and making a difference with your skills, then TIE is definitely right for you.
The key is getting your company to sponsor you and weave it in as part of your professional development. If your company isn’t already on board with TIE, then definitely get in touch and we can talk about how to present TIE to the decision makers. If your company is already on board, then all you need to do is put your name forward.
TIE is a hands-on tailored programme that runs in total from about six to twelve months, depending on when you go abroad. You are only out of the office during the intensive 30-day placement based in another country whilst you are working on your social project. You can fit the rest of the programme around your day job.
We have projects in South America, Africa, India, Europe and North America, and we’ll match you to the project that best fits your personal, professional and company objectives, ensuring a unique, tailored, mind blowing, and life altering experience every step of the way.
The programme includes training and orientation sessions to prepare you for the experience; coaching sessions to give you the time and space needed to think clearly and objectively about how you can harness your TIE experience to become an empowering milestone that propels you forward in your career journey; a hands on, tailored approach that will ensure you’re supported every step of the way; and accommodation, logistical support, 360 evaluations and pre-departure preparation to ensure success.
The program is raw, will push you to the limits, and inject you with a powerful energy. TIE placements are a catalyst to something extraordinary.
You will need to prepare for the TIE programme by being very clear on exactly what you want to achieve, what you hope to get out of the experience, what you hope to deliver, and what you hope to bring back to your industry and company. You will feel pushed at times. Feel out of your comfort zone at others. You will laugh. You may very well cry. But at the end of the experience you will feel stronger, more confident, and be injected with a horsepower and energy that will project you in a direction you never thought possible before embarking on the experience.
And don’t worry; we will be with you every step of the way to ensure you get the maximum value from this experience.
TIE is not for individuals looking to simply volunteer or take some time out from their day job. TIE is not a holiday. And not built for the masses.
TIE is a tailored leadership development opportunity, sponsored by your company, that will push you in a unique way, provide you with an opportunity to use your skills to make a difference, and give you the skills necessary to make a difference once you return to your role at your company.
It’s really easy to get started. You just need to contact us here.
We will then explain everything you need to know about making things happen for you! And hurry! The sooner you go on TIE, the sooner you can develop the skills you need to stand out from the crowd and make your mark.
Our projects work on a first come first served basis. Even though we are forever developing new and exciting experiences for our professionals, if there is a particular project that fits best with your desires, strategies or objectives, ensure you sign up and confirm things with us now.
