Leaders of the Future

The Leaders of the Future Program provides the opportunity for a new generation of Commercial and Contract Managers to gain fresh insight into key topics that are impacting our industry today and into the future. 

Each year we invite organisations to nominate an under 30 year old member of their team to take part in our regional competitions. This experience allows them to start building an international network of similarly placed individuals as well as benefiting from mentoring.  

The 2022 program runs from 25 April - good luck to everyone involved!

The 2022 Challenge

As The Economist neatly put it recently, "the era of predictable unpredictability is not going away."

For over two years now CCM teams have been taking emergency action to respond to historic global disruptions. In addition, we have discovered the unhealthy state of today’s contracts and processes - which served little if any purpose for organisations navigating the crisis.

Our 2021 Benchmark Survey confirmed that "Delivering Strategic Value" is the number one priority for our WorldCC Community. If unpredictability is not going away, and today’s contracts and contracting processes are incapable of dealing with its consequences, what does "Delivering Strategic Value" mean? How do we truly deliver strategic value?


2021 Global Winning Team - Europe!

The regional teams from APAC, Americas and Europe were not only judged on the impact of their presentation, but on the content and the learning that they have obtained over the course of the challenge. The Europe team showed incredible insight and analysis, as well as exceptional strength and creativity in their preparation. View the winning video below!
