the leadership of YBS Group isn't the board, it’s not the chiefs, it’s not the Senior Leadership Team, it’s these people - it’s these 550

our solution

Ignite 550 created an identity for YBS Group's frontline managers and provided ongoing development content via an online portal. Telling the leadership stories of this key community helped them feel valued, empowered and supported.

Ignite 550 launch event. The largest single event the Group had ever delivered

YBS Group supported our idea to make a strategic commitment to their frontline managers…and we helped them get started. Ignite 550 placed a specific focus on the FLM community across the organisation and was built around a calendar of content to cater for all learning types in a manageable, efficient way.


Ignite 550 launched in March 2016 as a fresh approach to development and learning for the Group. The emerging FLM community is transitioning to become a self-managed network and YBS are beginning to see the impact of our approach and material across the organisation.
