Sponsors are the lifeblood and key strategic stakeholders of FRED Leadership.
Our sponsors fuel our ambitious mission to inspire the development of principled, transformative leaders that make the world a better place. Our sponsors are comprised of the world’s leading business schools, consulting groups, and global companies that are at the forefront of reimagining the field of executive and leadership development.
FRED also supports emerging leaders early in their careers and recognizes leading role models for their outstanding contributions to the fields of leadership and leadership development.
Sponsors provide guidance and creative ideas for FRED’s Board of Directors. Through the annual Sponsors’ Summit and periodic updates and feedback, sponsors serve as a kind of “tribal council”, providing inspiration and wisdom to FRED Leadership as it grows and evolves.
Given that FRED Leadership is a (nonprofit) 501c3 corporation and overseen by an Executive Director and a volunteer Board of Directors, our sponsors, at times, are also called upon to provide “extra hands” for operational tasks.
Sponsors consistently refer to the FRED Forum as “the most important professional development experience” they’re involved in each year, because of its focus on moral, ethical, and transformative leadership and its innovative format.
FRED Leadership appreciates the Sponsors’ ongoing encouragement, inspiration, and support. In short, the sponsors’ group is the essential engine that drives FRED!
