On July 4th, Future London Leaders candidates and mentors gathered at the Building Centre to celebrate their completion of the programme. These 26 new graduates – 14 from Round Four, and 12 from Round Five – bring the Future London Leaders alumni network to nearly 70 people, working across the Capital’s public sector to make London a better place for all.
We congratulate them all for their hard work, and for the career advancement many have already experienced. Our thanks also go to each of them for their involvement, enthusiasm and insight within the Leaders programme and on the broader Future of London programme during their time with us.
The FLL programme was designed to deliver bespoke career development for member-organisation nominees, and to help nurture London’s next generation of leaders through networking and top-level skills training.
Key parts of the programme this year included:
- Support from a senior mentor
- Leadership skills training sessions with Urbancanda’s Miffa Salter and Andrena Cumella
- Site visits for both Round Four and Round Five to LB Brent’s South Kilburn estate; for Round Four to the Northern Line Extension and Battersea Power Station; and for Round Five to the Greenwich Peninsula
- Policy discussions on High Street renewal with Round Four candidates, and on localism and community-led governance with Round Five candidates
- Networking sessions for Round Four with PwC colleagues; for Round Five with Ros Dunn, Independent Chair of South Kilburn Neighbourhood Trust; and for all candidates at a Development Officers’ Forum on hot topics in planning with law firm Lewis Silkin.
We’re looking forward to launching the next round of Future London Leaders this autumn. Check out our Future London Leaders page for more information, or contact us to discuss how to get involved with this exciting programme.
