The Cranlana Programme exists to help leaders sharpen their thinking, bring clarity to their reasoning and strengthen their convictions. The programmes engage with the ideas of some of history’s greatest thinkers – not for the abstract purpose of philosophical discourse, but as a practical way of bringing that insight and wisdom into their professional and personal lives.

Alumni are invited back to Cranlana for our specialist speaker nights, orations, dinners, master-classes and advanced symposia.

In 2019, Cranlana launches the Alumni Saturday Sessions, an opportunity to refuel your sense of moral courage and reconnect the critical reasoning capabilities, the Cranlana programmes provide.  Starting in March we are offering intimate Saturday Sessions of philosophical and ethical discussion, finishing with fine wine and nibbles.

All four Saturday Sessions will explore different topical issues of national importance and reflect on the wisdom of both ancient and contemporary thinkers. What are the great moral obligations of our time, and what are the ethical challenges being faced right now?



Advanced Symposia are designed specially for alumni so they can re-engage with the concepts raised in their previous programme and revisit the experience of shared inquiry. The three topics, Power, Democracy, and Violence, investigate contemporary ethical dilemmas, and are the next step for those who have undertaken a Colloquium.

“All our knowledge begins with the senses,
proceeds then to the understanding, and ends with reason.
There is nothing higher than reason.”

Immanuel Kant (1724–1804)
