The LDC operates as a membership community, made up of organisations from a range of sectors – manufacturing, education, charities, performing arts, waste management, retail, construction and logistics.

Membership provides efficient and cost effective access to a range of resources and expertise. We’ve created a culture of support, sharing best practice and delivering outcomes. 

Some things we are clear about and generate a competitive edge for the LDC:

  • Organisational culture is ultimately the only source of competitive advantage
  • Investing in relationships and building trust
  • Everyone in the organisation has something to contribute and should be treated with dignity and respect
  • Looking beyond our own organisation will lead to improvement
  • Effective leadership is not determined by job title and authority
  • Personalised learning is the way forward
  • Giving back to our local communities and helping others is a very special thing to do
