Event description

Description

This is an event for the Forward Institute Fellowship only. If you are a Cohort 4 Fellow (2018 intake), you will be attending 3rd July but do not need to buy a ticket. Cohorts 1, 2 and 3 (2015, 2016 and 2017 intakes) are invited to register and purchase their ticket here.


About

We know responsible leadership isn’t an individual activity: you need many perspectives to do it. So come and reconnect with the Fellowship!

On July 3rd, join us in London (Bloomsbury) and learn from stories of progress, success and failure, strengthen the skills you’ve already deepened in the core programme, roll your sleeves up for some creative collaboration, and build cross-cohort relationships.


2ND JULY - EVENING ACTIVITIES - (SUPPLEMENTARY ACTIVITIES)

6:00pm - Arrivals & Welcome

7:00pm - Choice of evening activity: Street Wisdom or Community Dinner.


1) STREET WISDOM

The wisdom of the streets is on offer. Street Wisdom is a global social enterprise with a mission to bring inspiration to every street on earth. It’s an experience that allows anyone, anywhere to get unusual inspiration from their everyday surroundings. In just three hours of walking and wandering, participants have resolved problems that have dogged them for years, found new business ideas, changed careers and discovered new directions (dinner included).


2) COMMUNITY DINNER

Meet people with different perspectives, who are doing interesting things, living through challenging times or something else intriguing. Eat together, learn and talk.

We’ll confirm closer to the time which dinner options are available. Please let us know if you’d like to join or will simply join on the morning of the 3rd.
