Alumni Network

On joining one of our Leaders programmes, candidates are automatically part of the Future of London Alumni Network.

The network will reach 400 talented professionals in 2018, and is a platform for learning, socialising, connecting and career progression. Our alumni are delivering the housing, town centre, regen and infrastructure projects thatmake the capital more liveable, and they’re rising fast – four promotions in one 2016-17 round alone! We’re delighted to contribute to the development of these high-calibre professionals, and to have so many continue to actively engage with Future of London.

Alumni Network events

These bespoke events can explore more edgy territory than mainstream FoL events due to the closed forum. They’re designed and coordinated by alumni reps with support from Lovell and ING media. Events are open to alumni (no matter where they work now) and their guests.

Upcoming events

24 April, 6 pm – Election Preview
Open to alumni and their colleagues – contact an alumni rep (below) to register.

Alumni representatives

Alumni are represented on FoL’s Steering Group. As of 2017, we have two pairs of two-year reps who overlap, to share the load and help build knowledge. These volunteers organise events, coordinate e-bulletins with news and vacancies, curate the LinkedIn group and serve as a voice for alumni and candidates. They have guaranteed spaces at Steering Group dinners and regular contact with FoL’s team, to forward ideas and concerns. This is a great experience, confidence- and CV-builder; to learn more, contact your reps. Current reps are:
