Your weekly Future Leaders brief

Introduction; things are moving fast, and we want to keep everyone in the loop. Therefore we’ll start publishing weekly briefs to give you the inside scoop on the status quo. Feel free to contribute by sending updates, pictures, and questions to

Where is the focus? What are we working on these days?

On a global level, the goals we have mapped out for 2019 are centred around three primary goals ←

  1. Creating an exponential organization. Our scaling strategy is #1 Brand awareness and movement. #2 build a local community with events etc. #3 When the marked is ready; start the program. Each city will also sustain itself financially as early in the process as possible.

Handbooks and co-creation

  • To reach our scaling goals we need to develop a model that is easier to scale and understand. We’re in the progress of making something like this for Future Leaders. Robin is your go-to guy if you have input or wants to contribute.

Corporate programs

  • We are delivering the whole Future Leaders program as a service towards larger corporations globally, with DNB ASA as our first customer. The Future Leaders corporate program is getting attention in Norway these days, and we are near closing several new partnerships. If you have contacts or companies you think we should talk to, or are interested in hearing more about the corporate programs, reach out to Øyvind →
