UK Green Building Council 2017 Future Leaders Revealed



The members of the UK Green Building Council’s prestigious Future Leaders programme 2017 have been announced.

Now in its fourth year, the 9-month programme brings together early-stage professionals from across the built environment industry to take part in a unique programme of leadership and innovation. The course kicks off with a two day residential in January, followed by a series of innovation workshops, and will culminate in an evening of presentations to industry leaders in September 2017. The programme takes participants on a journey to develop skills in personal leadership, collaborative thinking, business model development, innovation and storytelling.

Future Leaders provides a forum for tomorrow’s leaders to grapple with the most critical issues that the sector will face in the future, and challenges participants to work collaboratively to address these. Graduates from the programme are able to join the exclusive Future Leaders alumni network, which brings opportunities for continued professional development and access to a growing number of thought-leaders right across the built environment value chain.
