The Emerging Leaders Network

The challenge for all emerging leaders is going to one of consistent uncertainty and learning; so it is important to be able to share thoughts with others in a similar position, hear the thoughts of industry leaders as well as build relationships and create a positive outlook.

Our view is that this is an important network as we are committed to promoting the voices of emerging leaders as well as ensuring that many feel that they are part of a network where they can meet like-minded professionals, share knowledge and ideas, have their voice heard and meet leaders from a range of fields.

The changing work patterns will naturally require companies to empower and trust their people and invest in their talent again. This was the norm in the 1980s and 90s, it was a reality that allowed many of today’s leaders to be successful as they felt enabled as they grew in their careers

Learning from Sport:

As many will know, we also have long enjoyed a strong relationship with The Sporting Wine Club who has been a partner with EP and also with a range of sporting figures who are keen to share their own learnings from what it takes to find success in careers.

Altogether, the above creates an exciting network which brings together business leaders, military leaders and sporting champions together to support the development of future leaders.
