Celebrating 10 Years of Future Leaders
This summer we are running a special edition of Future Leaders to mark the tenth anniversary of the programme. The programme will run across multiple sites in Birmingham and London.
The focus of the programme will be on taking ideas from the last 10 years of the programme and developing them into actionable business plans. Participants will gain skills in insight gathering, prototyping and experimentation as well as business model design.
What is Future Leaders?
The renowned five-month Future Leaders programme is designed for forward-thinking professionals with 5-10 years’ experience in the built environment industry. Through a mix of online and in person workshops, retreats and showcase events, participants work in teams to develop the skills and personal confidence to drive transformational change in their organisation. This transformation will not come about by business as usual, but through a radical and fundamental shift, in which sustainability and innovative thinking are strategic drivers.
Participants will benefit from a range of expert inputs and high profile keynote speakers, and will work to develop an innovation idea on key built environment sustainability challenges which are developed through the programme.
The Future Leaders 2023 Summer programme includes 3 key touchpoints:
Part 1: Explore and initiate
5th July: Kick-off Workshop (Online)
18th – 20th July: 3 day Innovation and Leadership Workshop (Birmingham)
Sustainability and radical transformation
Part 2: Develop and refine
12th – 13th September: 2 day Nature Retreat (Venue TBC)
Part 3: Action
29th November: 1 day Showcase (London or Birmingham)
There are also four additional online touchpoints and 1:1 coaching offered throughout the programme.
Who should apply?
Future Leaders are drawn from a range of backgrounds from the built environment sector, and are selected based on an enthusiasm to learn, an openness to new ways of thinking, and a desire to challenge the status quo. It is not a prerequisite to have sustainability in the job title – in fact the diversity of perspectives is crucial to the programme’s success.
As with our other leadership programmes, applications for Future Leaders are highly competitive, and we accept a maximum of two applicants from each organisation.
UKGBC offers up to five bursary places each year to an individual from either a not-for-profit organisation, SME, or local authority. In order to be considered for this place, your organisation must be a UKGBC member. Please contact email@example.com for more information.
