The realities of work have changed, but change presents opportunity! Global warming, LLM generative AI, hybrid working, gig and platform work all bring unique challenges, but they also give rise to creative solutions and successful business models.

Courageous, compassionate, and capable leaders can drive change, and help businesses balance urgency and possibility. If you aspire to lead your chosen industry towards innovation while making a positive impact, the Future Leaders Summer School is for you. We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you to Penryn!
