Future Business Leaders Programme, Launch Event

We welcomed over 60 students from schools across London to campus on 21 November for the launch event of our Future Business Leaders Programme 2018/19.

Our Future Business Leaders Programme, a flagship outreach programme was co-hosted by 'Future Foundations' who share our passion for inspiring young people to achieve their full potential. Students on the programme attend four workshops between years 12 and 13 to help them build their skills, knowledge and insight into the world of work, business and higher education. In this session, Future Foundations fantastic life coaches delivered a range of interactive activities aimed at encouraging team working, building trust and confidence.

Yasmin, one of the participating students from The Coopers Company and Coburn School commented:

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for organising the great day we had. It was really helpful to find out more about leadership and what you need to do to become a better leader. It was also great meeting other students from London who have similar interests. We will certainly remember and use the skills we learnt to help us with our future careers. It was a very insightful day and we can’t wait to come back in February."

The 2018/19 cohort join us again on 6 February for the second session in the series on International Business and Cross Cultural Communication.
