Future Leaders Forum

About the Future Leaders' Forum

The Future Leaders’ Forum is designed to add value to BSAC Membership by allowing Members to nominate rising stars to benefit from the opportunity to consider together the range of challenges facing the sector in which they have already begun to establish a successful career. Structured around three regular Forum events a year, each curated by a Steering Committee of Forum Members with full BSAC assistance, the BSAC Future Leaders’ Forum supports continuing professional development and provides significant networking opportunities for Forum members. Reflecting the established BSAC model, it is a private forum for those already on the path to success in the audiovisual and interactive entertainment sectors, generating insights from across a wide range of organisations which share a common interest in the monetisation of audiovisual content.

There is no charge for members of the BSAC Future Leaders’ Forum who have been nominated by a BSAC Member.
