It’s not just the winners of The Future Leaders of the Year Competition who receive prizes – no one who participates will leave empty handed (although the top prizes are pretty impressive).
For all the Future Leaders
Young people having the courage to record a two-minute pitch video on why they are a leader and sending it to a panel of judges for review is a celebration of leadership in itself! That’s why everyone who enters is a Future Leader and will receive a certificate and digital badge that can be added to CVs and personal statements. It’s a great way to showcase the kind of skills that employers are looking for – not just top grades and exam results.
As part of the application process, they will also gain a free profile on globalbridge to showcase their achievements outside of academia to potential employers.
The Final 20
Our judging panel have the tough job of choosing just 20 ‘ones to watch’ from all the applicants, who will be invited to attend a virtual final. The final will be run as a day-long leadership development workshop, offering an incredible opportunity for the finalists to work with some of the most senior leadership and life coaches in the country, and have access to a powerful network of employers and entrepreneurs.
An additional certificate and digital badge will display their status as a ‘one to watch’, highlighting their leadership capabilities and experience gained by getting this far in the competition.
The mentoring scheme we offered to the winners of last year’s competition was so valuable that everyone of the final 20 in 2023 will be offered the opportunity to be matched with a mentor to guide them and share their knowledge.
Plus, virtual work experience will be available to every participant to help them continue their leadership journey.
As if that isn’t enough, they’ll also be invited to join the Ivy House Alumni Platform giving them access to powerful network of coaches, young leaders from a range of organisations, and ongoing learning content to continue expanding their knowledge – building an incredible ecosystem to support them on their journey.
Top 5 winners
The 5 winners will be named ‘Future Leaders of the Year’ at the end of the virtual final on 20th January 2023. On top of everything they have gained throughout the process, the winners will also be rewarded with a £1k financial investment each to support them on their path to an extraordinary future – whatever that might be.
