We link future leaders from the commercial world with social initiatives across the globe. We provide a unique platform that is a catalyst to exclusive Leadership Development, whilst creating endeavours that impact organisations, their beneficiaries and local communities.
We love that every professional comes away from our programme with a greater understanding of their purpose and what drives them in their work, seeing the true potential in their abilities, and feeling proud of their profession and the skills they have worked so hard to develop.
Since 2007 we have been developing conscious leaders who are shaping the future of their industries and companies and helping to find revolutionary solutions to some of the world’s most intractable problems.
Our goal is to create better leaders. Better companies. And a better world.
We’d love for you to get involved with our exclusive Leadership Development Programme. There are a few ways that you can. Keep reading to find out how.
“At Octopus, we think that to learn and grow as a person, you need to take chances and do new stuff. We love how TIE works because they attract caring people who have valuable skills and are willing to be thrown into the deep end. Then they match those people with projects where they can make a big difference. That’s how TIE gets such fantastic results.”

“Professionally, I think I’ve grown into being a more conscientious, well-rounded team member, striving to listen effectively and combine others’ input with what knowledge I may have in a given area. Moreover, I think I’ve grown into becoming more comfortable [and confident!] in taking a leadership position, leveraging my skills productively and believing in the contribution I can make.”

“The marketing leadership from TIE has been invaluable. One of our main products, The Maeve stove, which the launch campaign was organized with help from TIE, had sold 500 stoves over two years before TIE’s help. After the TIE event (30 days after the start of the TIE project), Maeve sold 10,000 stoves. 4 years later we are close to reach 400,000 households. It seems that almost everyone in Malawi is now aware of the stove and its benefits.”
