A professional development programme making leadership in Nottinghamshire more diverse and representative – by creating a network of talented people to inspire others and drive change.

Life Opportunities

“I’m impressed with the impact the programme is making on individuals and our city. I’m committed to equality of opportunity and this is what Future Leaders is all about. It equips those who have leadership potential with all the tools and contacts they need to succeed.”

Michael Henry Director - Communuties Inc

“Futures has had a number of people go through the programme who have enormously benefited; developing an understanding of their potential to influence change. The programme is not only beneficial to those in the public and voluntary sectors but to any business looking to develop their people.”

Liz Walters Professional Development Manager Futures

“The Future Leaders of Nottingham programme has provided staff with the confidence to aspire to senior positions and importantly, to be themselves. We would recommend any organisation looking to deal with similar challenges to become a partner on the programme.”

Giles Matsell Head of Equality and Diversity Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust

“I have been involved in the Future Leaders of Nottingham programme for two years as a facilitator and assessor. The ‘Personal Brand’ masterclass that I deliver helps people build their confidence, recognise their strengths and weaknesses, and discuss these in a supportive learning environment. It’s interactive and fun too!”

Adrian Bennett Director of Broadwater Training

“Nottingham’s population is becoming more diverse. Nottingham City Homes has recognised that workforce representation has not kept up, particularly at decision-making levels. Leadership diversity is vital for decision making that understands changing customer and employee demographics and helps us retain existing employees in under-represented groups. Our employees on this programme have re ned skills that are needed at board level and in senior management, widening our talent pool for future recruitment.”

Anita Hodson Equality and Diversity Manager Nottingham City Homes
