About vocL

With the requirement for all business to consider its broader social impact, business leaders are increasingly expected to voice their opinions with authenticity and a strong sense of social purpose. This ability to communicate effectively internally and externally is now a fundamental must-have ability for any business leader.

vocL supports next generation leaders - “vocL’s Future Voices”, by mentoring them to improve and fine tune their communication skills, especially for the communication outside of their own organisations.

What makes vocL unique is the combination of specialised mentoring and an app on which mentees practice their communication in real life, by co-creating content with their mentors and peers and supported by world class journalists.

The vocL app offers a safe and constructive space for lively and interesting debate, from which we share content externally (on traditional & social media channels), when appropriate, to create awareness of vocL and our content.

vocL launched in January 2022 and we are growing steadily.
