The winners will be crowned as Future Leaders and will feature in Campaign.

The three-day course will build the skills and knowledge required to make the jump into senior management. Participants will learn how to collaborate across multiple marketing disciplines to maximise client effectiveness, with opportunities to network with leading peers across advertising, media and PR in an intense environment. They will learn from our senior agency experts how to develop management acumen and fast-track their marketing craft knowledge through world-class learning experiences.

The course will run in central London from 14-16 October. To sign yourself or your star employees up for the course, contact Eileen Muir on +44 (0)20 8267 4011 or e-mail
