The mission of the FLP is to build our industry’s next generation of purpose-driven leaders and to provide these future leaders with knowledge and connections to tackle the challenges they will face on their path to C-level.
What better way, then, than to foster a bridge between present and future generations?
This is why the FLP Conference is evolving to take place back-to-back with the Global Summit, our flagship event, which gathers together 1,000 CEOs and C-suite executives from CGF member companies from around the world.
The next edition of the FLP Conference will take place in New York, June 2021. Delegates will enjoy a specially-designed FLP programme on Monday; join Summit delegates on the Store Tour on Tuesday; and on Wednesday, after an FLP-dedicated morning, will have the opportunity to experience the Global Summit plenary sessions and Official Cocktail, along with its delegates – the leaders of the biggest retailers and consumer brands on the planet.
Participating in parts of the Summit will allow FLP delegates to not only hear from the same top-notch speakers, but also to rub shoulders with our industry’s key decision makers, opening incalculable learning opportunities, while the FLP-exclusive sessions and workshops will continue to deliver the same high-level insights and learnings as previous editions.
Furthermore, FLP Alumni will be invited to join and contribute to the active FLP Network, an online community launched in 2018 that offers a safe space for FLPers to exchange challenges and thoughts among peers, as well as to benefit from exclusive content shared by conference speakers, CEOs and thought-leaders.
Join us in our mission to build the exclusive network of the future C-level of our industry, connected to today’s leaders and built on the values expected of by today’s shoppers and consumers. We encourage you to carefully select the three or four highest-potential future leaders from your company, considering gender and other forms of diversity, to integrate into the FLP – and we ensure you that your company will get as much from this experience as your young leaders will.
We know great leaders never stop learning. Their development continues throughout their lives and the context in which they lead is always changing. The FLP seeks out and promotes the most up to date strategic insight, best practice exchanges around operations and the most compelling and relevant senior leadership lessons for high potential leaders who are acquiring their first divisional or functional management responsibilities.
We are committed to the CGF’s vision for a sustainable future.
We build the foundations for collaboration amongst the next generation of consumer industry leaders.
We believe in the power of external networks to enrich both individual companies and the industry as a whole.
We support leadership learnings at a critical stage in fast-track careers
We encourage programme members to be ambassadors for both their employers and the industry.
