The Slovak and Czech Fundraising Centres are seeking new participants for this year’s CEE Leaders of Tomorrow programme.


Developed by the Centres in collaboration with Kay Sprinkel Grace (USA) and Tony Myers (CAN), the 12-month programme aims to address a critical need in leadership development. Through experiential learning and teaching from experts it focuses on development of personal, organisational, community and professional leadership qualities. It also offers participants the opportunity to explore their own leadership style and principles. An important part of the programme will also be leadership in fundraising.


CEE Leaders of Tomorrow 2017 will begin with an orientation session and a four-day intensive experiential learning workshop delivered by Kay and Tony together with Jan Kroupa and Jana Ledvinová (CZE) and Eduard Marček (SVK). It will be held in the vicinity of Bratislava, Slovakia, and this year takes place from 22-27 October 2017.


The participants will then progress through their own individualised leadership programme with the support of dedicated mentors. Each participant will develop a personal leadership development plan to help them reach the next level of achievement whether they are aspiring to be leaders or have already attained a leadership role. The culmination of the programme includes a leadership summit, which is conducted one year after the initial leadership training.


Previous participants have described the programme as the ‘most amazing and life changing experience ever’, as a great restart and as the best investment they could have made.
