Fellowship Forum

2nd & 3rd July 2019

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.

The night before, on the 2nd July we have fun and stimulating evening activities on offer for everyone to join - let us know if you can make these and of the two options, which you would prefer.

This is an event for the Forward Institute Fellowship only. If you are a Cohort 4 Fellow (2018 intake), you will be attending 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.

2nd July


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.


MorninG: Peer-to-peer discussion and advice

Some time to step back and reflect on a current workplace challenge or dilemma that you face. We’ll organise friendly consulting with a diverse group of Fellows and if the weather’s nice, you might even get to do that out on the grass.

Afternoon: Provocation and skill-building workshops

In a festival style, you will be able to attend multiple sessions to explore new ideas and hear some challenging and provocative views. We’re bringing together experts, leaders, Fellows and Faculty who will explore issues and approaches to change, leadership and the big issues facing the world and your organisation today. Pick and mix your programme among more than 15 sessions. Details to follow.

Eliza Manningham-Buller: Chair, Wellcome trust & former Director General, MI5

Baroness Manningham-Buller will run an off-the-record discussion reflecting on what she has learnt working across sectors and having faced some of the toughest challenges and decisions in her extraordinary career.

Drinks and dinner

6:30pm - 9:00pm

It wouldn’t be a Forward Institute event without some time to connect, meet and chat with other Fellows, hopefully with a glorious sunset as the backdrop.

6th June [UPDATED FROM 14th MARCH]

Time: 4:30 - 6:00pm

Address: 12a Charterhouse Square, London, EC1M 6AX

Speaker: Chris Tamdjidi

Did you know?

The annual cost to employers of poor mental health is £33bn – £42bn (presenteeism, absence, turnover).

Stress is the single biggest determinant in affecting our mental health.

Regular recovery is necessary for physiological systems to overcome the effects of stress. Recovery means reduced activation levels in the body in the absence of internal and external stress factors.

Chris will talk about the benefits of recovery, ways to measure your ability to recover from stress and what you can do to improve them.
