World Changers: Shaping Futures
Our new programme Shaping Futures will be launching between on 20th July 2020
A 4-week online programme for emerging leaders globally who want to build their skills, confidence and leadership capacity to shape futures.
The Shaping Futures programme is based on our leadership education methodology and experience working with emerging leaders, from across Europe, Asia, and Africa.
It focuses on two core elements to unlocking leadership capabilities: greater self-awareness and effective vision and goal setting.
The programme aims to help you to develop your skills, knowledge and confidence, to find your innate leadership abilities.
Skills. Develop the skills you need for effective vision and goal setting.
Self-awareness. Gain an understanding of your strengths and areas to develop.
Confidence. Build the confidence to lead yourself and others in a complex and fast changing world.
Knowledge. Understand how you can play a part in shaping your world and creating a positive future.
Network. Join a global network of like-minded emerging leaders.
What will I gain?
Is this programme for me?
Do you want to...
Enhance your understanding of your own strengths and areas to develop

Experience needed: None.
We believe that everyone can be a change maker if we can unlock your leadership potential.
We will tailor the programme around your experience level so that you develop at your own pace.
We recognise that people learn in different ways and that you are on a personal journey of discovery. Therefore, you can work on any goals you want to.
In our past programmes, participants have worked on skill-based goals such as improving confidence at public speaking or tackling procrastination. Others have worked towards starting new community projects or businesses.
The choice is yours and will be based on your vision for yourself. We will help you to develop this vision and translate this into two goals you can work towards during the programme.
