Every leader must face the triple threat of existential risks like climate change and social injustice; pioneering technologies like artificial intelligence and blockchain; and disrupted societies with customers and employees demanding more meaning, mastery, and membership. As these challenges become ever more pressing, we need a new style of leadership – one which embraces purpose and delivers transformation.
FutureMakers is all about ensuring a better future for people, business, and the environment, and we do this by running inspiring leadership, innovation and culture change programmes that equip emerging leaders with the insight, tools and skills they need to transform themselves and their organisations. By reigniting purpose and applying a world-class innovation process, individuals and businesses can work creatively to solve pressing problems, get ahead in a fast-changing world, and reconnect with customers and peers to deliver positive impact.
I've learned so much about innovation, storytelling and how to get the best out of myself and others. There are few programmes that you can attribute to changing your life - this is one of them.
What is FutureMakers?
Our programmes are designed for future-forward individuals and businesses who want to innovate to maximise commercial value whilst helping people and the planet thrive. We inspire leaders to solve difficult problems with breakthrough solutions whilst learning the skills and practices they need to stay motivated as they engage others at every level to deliver their ideas. We help businesses anticipate and adapt to change, cultivate innovation from within, and rethink business models to deliver commercial success whilst maximising environmental and social impact.
Our programmes deliver in 3 key areas:
Purpose-driven leadership: masterclasses, programmes, coaching
Sustainable innovation: masterclasses, programmes, and labs
Culture change: sustainability education, system change programmes
Programmes are structured around a combination of inspiring thought leadership keynotes, practical problem-solving sessions, innovation tools, and leadership coaching. In all of our FutureMakers initiatives, we draw upon world-class leadership and innovation theory and practical toolkits. This immersive learning approach ensures the individuals and organisations who participate in our programmes:
Gain insight into complex trends that will affect their business, so they can learn to embrace the rapidly changing world without fear
Solve business problems in new ways by understanding the process and tools of innovation and how to create a culture of innovation
Fast-track personal leadership by amplifying self-awareness and boosting emotional mastery
Apply compelling storytelling techniques to engage colleagues and clients and attract necessary resources to take innovative ideas forward
