#Alumni500 Celebration

#alumni500 celebration composite v2

21 October, 6 pm @ Royal Festival Hall’s Weston Roof Pavilion

Join Future of London alumni – already more than 500! – plus mentors, members and partners from across our network in celebrating the impact and vitality of this influential, purpose-driven network.

Starting from the first Future London Leaders graduates in 2010 to those on FLL Round 29 and Leaders Plus Round 11 (with two of those in Greater Manchester), our alumni are in leadership positions across the UK and the world, responsible for tens of thousands of homes, cities’ worth of regeneration schemes and billions in investment spend. That they are consistently recognised as effective and thoughtful people to work with matters even more.

With a mix of activities, media and lots of time to catch up (plus lovely food and drink), this will be one of the sector’s biggest events of 2021, and is being produced by FoL with our alumni representatives and board members.

The event will also feature FoL’s first Mentor Awards, celebrating the talented and thoughtful cross-sector leaders – now more than 200 in London and Greater Manchester! – who have shared insights and been a sounding board for candidates throughout. More info & nomination opportunities will follow shortly.

Watch for alumni stories, podcasts and other content in the run-up to 21 October, and be sure to register for the event when we go live in Summer.

Get involved

We can only host 220 people – that may sound like a lot these days, but by October there will be nearly 600 alumni and 200+ mentors amongst the now 5,000+ people in the FoL network: places will go fast!
