Steering Group

Future of London’s Steering Group includes top urban practitioners from across the Capital. The group helps guide programming and strategy, and is made up of representatives from our public-sector membership, exclusive core-sponsor cohort and Leaders alumni.

The Board of Directors is drawn from the Steering Group and meets regularly to oversee the organisation as a whole. The next directorships will open in 2016.

Please see below for our current Board of Directors and the rest of Future of London’s Steering Group.
