Join the Future Global Leaders Programme 2020


This programme is designed for Future Global Leaders, one or two levels below main board, who are heading for the boardroom. Senior executives benefit immensely from the challenge of taking on a Non-Executive Director (NED) or Trustee role. Nurole is inviting 120 talented, ambitious individuals to prepare for such roles by joining our 2020 Cohort of Future Global Leaders. We hope that 50% of our participants will find a NED or Trustee role within 12 months of joining.


  • Access to events tailored to the needs of first-time board members, including some sector-specific events (see sample list below)
  • Tips on how to successfully apply and interview for NED and Trustee roles 
  • Membership of a safe online community of all the 2020 Future Global Leaders, where fellow course members can have confidential chats and support each other
  • Membership of the Nurole Network, giving course members the chance to apply for board-level roles in the commercial, non-profit and government sectors that match their interests and expertise


£5,000 per person per annum
