We are delighted to announce details of over 20 successful emerging leaders who will participate in the second Cobseo Emerging Leader Programme designed for the Armed Forces charities sector and core funded by FiMT.
The Cobseo Emerging Leader Programme is a 6-month leadership development journey aimed at emerging leaders working in the Armed Forces charities sector. Designed in partnership with Cobseo and FiMT, the programme will seek to build agile, resilient and effective leadership while consolidating solidarity, collaboration and joint action within the sector.
The 2019 cohort consists of 20+ leaders working in a variety of Armed Forces charities sector organisations, including larger charities such as SSAFA, Poppyscotland, The Royal British Legion and Seafarers UK, as well as smaller ones, for example Bravehound and East Sussex Veterans’ Hub.
Commenting on the 2019 intake, Air Vice-Marshal Ray Lock CBE, Chief Executive of Forces in Mind Trust and a Cobseo Executive Committee member said:
“We are delighted to be funding this second bespoke Cobseo version of Clore’s prestigious Emerging Leader Programme, particularly in light of the achievements of participants on the inaugural programme last year.
Some of FiMT’s aims are to encourage collaboration and enhance leadership, thus strengthening the Armed Forces charities sector. The Clore programme is a perfect example of this in action. This programme delivers a measurable impact on the broader sector and the benefit to the participants will also enable them to empower their colleagues. All of the Cobseo Executive Committee and FiMT wish the 2019 participants well with the programme, and we’re looking forward to engaging with our future senior leaders.”
