Young people to be inspired to become Leaders of Tomorrow

Wednesday 28 September 2022


Ten local students who are enrolled on the Guernsey Institute of Directors’ (IoD) Leadership Shadowing initiative have been invited to attend the IoD Convention as ‘Leaders of Tomorrow’.

They've also been invited to attend an exclusive lunch with Boardroom 2030 members who will be on the IoD Convention panel.

Known previously as the ‘Directors of Tomorrow’, this initiative has been rebranded as ‘Leaders of Tomorrow’ to inspire young people to become the island’s future leaders.

This name and new approach is intend to more closely align with the IoD’s student programme for young leaders. The Leaders of Tomorrow scheme, which is sponsored by the Ana Leaf Foundation, aims to celebrate young business talent on the island, and to expose Guernsey’s Leaders of Tomorrow to thought leadership and inspiring career role models from the Bailiwick and beyond. This will then create an alumni network of students who have the potential to be Guernsey future leaders.

The students, representing Guernsey’s sixth form cohort, will meet representatives from Boardroom 2030 which is a campaign created by B Lab UK inviting businesses to explore and model what a 2030 future in Guernsey might look like for them. 

Hayley de Putron, a Trustee of the Ana Leaf Foundation, said: “We want to provide students with opportunities that will help them excel today and be the best they can be. We’re proud that this programme will give young people the chance to engage with the leaders of today in the hope they will be inspired to become the Guernsey leaders of tomorrow.”
