Tomorrow’s Leader Selection Criteria

Tomorrow’s Leaders are the individuals in your organisation blessed with that indefinable X factor for success – the ones you know are destined for senior executive roles in your organisation, the ones whose names always come up when succession planning is discussed. In other words, Tomorrow’s Leader is an insightful visionary who consults broadly and decides firmly. Ethical but not rigid, Tomorrow’s Leader can spot and harness talent and opportunity. A creative and resourceful individual, trustworthy and emotionally intelligent, Tomorrow’s Leader is also a tactician with impeccable timing and the uncanny ability to just make things work.

•           At least 5 years’ work experience

•           Proven track record

•           Middle to upper management position

•           Under the age of 45

Young Leader Selection Criteria

Because we know that leaders are cultivated and mentored, Tomorrow’s Leaders Convention’s Alumni programme allows a new generation of Tomorrow’s Leaders to be identified. These candidates are ambitious, driven, outstanding, recently graduated under-30s who may still be finding their way or moving up the leadership ladder.
