On 17 June, LB Croydon CEO Jo Negrini presented to a cross-sector group of next-wave city leaders at Future of London’s City Makers’ Forum on the challenges of local leadership. In conversation with event host Chris Paddock, Director at Hatch Regeneris, Jo provided some interesting lessons and top tips.
City Makers’ Forum
There has never been a more challenging and exciting time to live and work in London. The pace of change is fast and shows no sign of stopping. The capital will need leaders who can manage this shifting and complex landscape. But what will the future challenges be and what kind of leadership is required?
Many of London’s urban leadership programmes are working to equip future leaders with the confidence, skills and knowledge they’ll need. But this is not enough. Urban professionals also need an engaged and diverse network to draw upon.
In response, Future of London and Hatch Regeneris have established a cross-sector, interdisciplinary network that complements existing leadership programmes by building collective resilience and a spirit of collaboration.
Through quarterly events that explore key urban issues with invited guest speakers, this forum will bring together those interested in shaping the future of our cities to share experience and learn from one another.
We want to bring as many of London’s future leaders together as possible. If you’d like to be involved in the forum, contact us.
