LEAD expands its European Fellowship Programme to serve unprecedented demand for leadership learning

leadershipLEAD has experienced such a surge in demand for its LEAD Europe Fellowship Programme 2012/13 that it has more than doubled the number of places available.

"With Europe in a state of flux, our emerging leaders are seizing the opportunity to change the course of their careers, adjusting to the changing world we live in and redirecting their talents towards a more sustainable future," said Edward Kellow, Head of Learning and Leadership at LEAD. "The LEAD Europe Fellowship Programme which is geared to professionals who want to become more effective change-makers in their work and personal life is clearly what they're looking for."

The world-class LEAD Europe Programme is one of the most dynamic, engaging and innovative leadership and sustainability programmes in Europe.

Working in a team to solve real leadership and sustainability problems is what makes the LEAD Programme unique, memorable and inspiring. In 2012/13 you can join a group exploring leadership challenges around food and population in Portugal, energy in Bulgaria, and sustainable urban community issues in London.

With 22 intensive days between autumn and spring 2012/2013 the LEAD Programme is learner-centred, experiential, participatory and fun. On-location residential sessions addressing real sustainability challenges are interspersed with collaborative projects and self-study elements.

The Fellowship Programme is enriched by the diversity and experience of the people it attracts, drawing applicants from all sectors, all ages, across Europe and beyond, to form a vibrant, stimulating and creative learning environment.

"My fellow LEAD associates are the most dynamic and inspiring group of people I have ever been around - diverse, intelligent, passionate, and humble," explains LEAD Fellow, Efrain Quiros. "In some settings I feel like I do not entirely fit in, with my fellow LEAD Europe associates, I feel at home."

This sense of community extends beyond the end of the Programme when Fellows join the LEAD Fellows network. With over 2,400 LEAD Fellows worldwide there is a wealth of talent and expertise to tap into.
