Our Emerging Leaders Programme is specifically focused on developing future talent and giving high potential candidates an experienced sounding board and network to support them through the next stage of their career.
Supporting future leaders
Never before has the business world been subject to such disruptive change. To succeed in this environment strong leadership is critical. The Berwick Partners Emerging Leaders Programme has been designed to inspire, inform and encourage the personal and professional development of future leaders from businesses across the UK. Our twelve-month programme is for high performing individuals aspiring to Executive and Board level positions.
About the programme
The programme runs from January to December each year and consists of quarterly sessions chaired by prominent business figures and experts in leadership development. To support their personal development each participant will be partnered with a mentor, who will provide advice and guidance specific to the individual’s needs.

- Receiving ongoing advice through peer relationships developed within the programme;

I found it a fantastic programme with great networking with a interesting and diverse group of people. The topics selected were all very relevant at this point in my career. I wish it could somehow continue - four sessions not enough!
2019 Participant from Sir Robert McAlpine
Berwick Partners did an excellent job in facilitating a first-rate Emerging Leaders Programme. Coordination and communication was of the highest standard as was the Programme content. External speakers provided breadth to the Programme and the Programme was a tremendous success!

The programme brought together some fascinating people and my mentee was a great choice. We learnt a lot of each other quickly and I feel we both got something of huge value from our participation.
