Today, the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) has announced the launch of applications for the 2019 cohort of its high-impact Change Accelerator programme.

The programme brings together experienced business leaders from across the built environment to lead transformational change in their businesses, and ultimately to work together to facilitate a systemic shift in the sustainability of the built environment.

Over a three-month period from March 2019, participants will experience a rigorous leadership curriculum where they will redefine their leadership purpose, understand how to influence systems, and hone their storytelling techniques. This process will allow them to maximize influence and deliver transformational change in their businesses. They will have the opportunity to apply a new framework to existing challenges, leverage new insights and develop a strategy to positively disrupt barriers to change and help them achieve a breakthrough.

The closing date for applications is Monday 15 October 2018, more information on the programme, including how to apply, can be found on the UKGBC website.

Cat Hirst, Director of Learning and Innovation at UKGBC said:

“Our Change Accelerator programme gives business leaders a unique opportunity to reconnect with their purpose, reflect on their own leadership journey, and learn new ways to maximise their influence and impact on a rapidly changing world. Far from a conventional leadership programme, the Change Accelerator offers an experience that combines genuinely inspiring content, peer to peer learning, and practical guidance on achieving breakthroughs’.

Feedback from this year’s cohort has been incredibly positive, with many delegates articulating just how transformational the experience has been for them and their businesses.  Construction and property companies must find ways to thrive in a changing world and ensure that sustainable outcomes are at the heart of their business. This programme makes that possible.”
