Future Leaders Festival 2019 is a week dedicated to championing the leaders of tomorrow. We’ll be shining a spotlight on leaders who have the skills, knowledge and courage to be change-makers.
Boundary-pushing authors of best-selling book Slay in Your Lane, Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebinene will talk about what the future of leadership looks like to them. You’ll then have the opportunity to network with the speakers and senior leaders from CMI’s network. There’ll be practical tips to take away so you have the tools to make the maximum impact in your early career. The event will be hosted by Buzz Feed’s news editor Elizabeth Pears.
