New mentors announced for the Future Leader Programme

Since launching our Future Leader Programme in 2018 we’ve been overwhelmed by the industry support for developing talent. At all levels we’ve had people asking if they can get involved and we are pleased to announce the addition of three new mentors to the programme.

Some of the industry’s best names are committed to helping our delegates feel ready for any boardroom. Alongside our original six mentors:

  • Alex Alway – Compass
  • Ashwin Mistry OBE – Brokerbility
  • Ian Donaldson – Autonet
  • Paul Chainey – Miles Smith
  • Rob Worrell – Ardonagh Group
  • Steve Bamforth – Griffith and Armour

We are pleased to welcome to the Future Leader Mentor team:

  • John O’Roarke - Horwich Farrelly
  • Polly Staveley - TL Dallas
  • Ryan Brown - PIB Group

The Mentors play an important role for the delegates offering support, guidance and coaching not only on projects related to the programme but also in the delegates own businesses. Mentors provide a different perspective and offer a wealth experience from someone who has been there and done that. Our delegates tell us the mentors support is invaluable and we would like to thank all the mentors for sharing their time and expertise with our delegates and for being part of the programme.
