FiMT funds military sector participants in Clore Social Leadership’s Experienced Leader Programme

Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) is delighted to announce the five specialist fellows who have been selected to take part in the 2020 Clore Experienced Leader Programme:

  • Allie Bennington, Help for Heroes
  • Beverley Russell, Stoll
  • Tom Adam, The Poppy Factory
  • Tom Barham, Alabaré
  • Tommy Watson, Walking with the Wounded

This intensive 12-month programme is designed for leaders in the social sector with over 6 years’ experience who seek to build their leadership capabilities and make a lasting difference within the sector.

The programme offers access to individual coaching, residentials, peer-to-peer learning, online courses, and more, all designed to fit around existing time commitments.  Participants will be supported, challenged and inspired by a group of like-minded social sector leaders and learn through real-world challenges, while using a variety of techniques.

Commenting on the 2020 Experienced Leader cohort, Tom McBarnet, Director of Programmes at Forces in Mind Trust, said: “We continue to believe that Clore Social Leadership’s Experienced Leader Programme (ELP) offers significant benefit to its participants, their organisations, and those they work with.  Capacity-building within the military charity sector is one of FiMT’s core objectives, so we are delighted to support the five programme Fellows from the military charity sector.  We have no doubt that through ELP these individuals’ capabilities will be significantly enhanced.  That is not only an excellent result for these Fellows but of huge value to the Sector itself where we strongly hope their skills can be brought to bear both for near term advantage and also lasting benefit.

Clore Social Leadership’s Programme Director, Jamie Audsley said: “We’re thrilled to welcome a new cohort of participants and support them on their leadership development journey.  We look forward to a challenging, inspiring, and rewarding year ahead which will seek to build new relationships, strengthen existing leadership skills and discover new ones, and amplify the positive impact of social leadership on our sector.”
