ukactive launches Future Leaders 2017 for talented physical activity professionals

Up-and-coming professionals in the physical activity industry will have the chance to further the careers with a week-long leadership programme, courtesy of ukactive.

Companies in the sector are being encouraged to put forward high-achieving employees for the organisation’s Future Leaders 2017.

The second edition of the programme will see successful candidates flown out to Barcelona to take the course at the esteemed IESE Business School in 2017.

However, Future Leaders 2017 consists of more than just a week-long course. Participants will be required to produce a 100-day plan to put lessons learnt into practice in their workplace.

This year’s programme will also include the Matrix LeadAbility Scholarship Programme, which aims to fast track disabled people into senior leadership positions in the physical activity sector.

Last year, more than 30 individuals took part in the inaugural Future Leaders programme.

Regional director of GLL Gareth Kirk, who took part in 2016’s course, said: “The experience has helped me to refocus on leadership and the longer-term benefits of applying a leadership approach, rather than just a functional management focus.”

Another alumnus Sarah Edmonds, Active IQ’s director of quality and standards, added: “Future Leaders showed us that whether you’re an operator or supplier, marketeer or educator, we are bound by two things: a passion for this industry and a responsibility to lead it to success in the future.”
