programme overview
Are you an emerging leader within retail? Are you ready to become a leader of change within your organisation?

In order to lead in a world driven by purpose, it's time to embark on a new way of thinking.
The shaping of our future has never been more important, that’s why we’ve created our Emerging Leaders programme (part of the BRC Leaders Summer School), set around the 4 lenses of People, Purpose, Planet & Profit.

If you are new to leadership, this programme will help you build the foundations of your future success in a changing world. Built on the prestigious heritage of OSS Retail and informed with current insight direct from the BRC, you will immerse yourself in all things sustainability, coaching, change management, conscious leadership, and purpose beyond profit.

WHAT OUR LEARNERS SAY

The emphasis on reflection before and after each piece of learning has been good discipline and a way of working that I will aim to continue. Taking time for reflection has allowed me the space to take a more holistic view of our business and the part we need to play to be a positive force on the High Street.

CARRIE MORRIS | BOOKA BOOKSHOP
Where do I start? The content is phenomenal! My stand-out moments, so far, are Mary Portas’ opening speech and everything Paul Anderson-Walsh has been involved in, particularly the live event on Wednesday 14th July. Everything he says makes sense and resonates with me. 

EMMA GAW | WICKES K & B HOME DELIVERY NETWORK

I’ve had my eyes opened to the responsibility that I have for our planet, that as a leader I must pave the way to a more sustainable future. I am now challenged daily with the phrase “If not me, then WHO? If not now, then WHEN?”
