Our Alumni

Since it began in 2010, Future of London’s career-development programme, originally known as ‘Rising Stars’, has evolved – and improved – continuously. The constant has been the high calibre of the candidates, and we’ve watched successive waves of  Leaders graduates move upward and onward through the London regeneration sector, delivering the housing, town-centre, regeneration and infrastructure projects that make the capital truly liveable. We’re delighted to have been part of their professional development, and to have so many continue to be actively engaged with Future of London. We salute them all!
