FIDIC Future Leaders Group

The FIDIC Future Leaders is the group of young professionals of the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC). It was formed in 2004 with the intention of providing FLs with the opportunity to participate actively in FIDIC with their peers and to develop the next generation of consulting engineering industry leaders. As a leadership committee, the Future Leaders Advisory Council (FLAC) was formed to develop communication and networking opportunities for all FLs involved in the FIDIC community.

Promoting the participation of future leaders in the consulting engineering industry's activities.

The FIDIC Future Leaders Management Course

The FIDIC Future Leaders Management Course (FLMC) is a seven-month interactive training programme in business practice for future line managers, see Future Leaders Management Course.

FIDIC has always offered attendance at FIDIC's Annual Conference as part of FIDIC’s Future Leaders Management Course. Attendance at the Conference and the networking opportunities which it offers has been one of the many highlights of the programme and the FLMC programme also intends to offer FIDIC’s Annual Infrastructure Conference at a 50% discounted rate.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, FIDIC’s Annual Infrastructure Conference will be held online in 2021. However, we are hopeful that FIDIC’s Annual Infrastructure Conference will go ahead in person in 2022. As was the case in 2020, 2021 FLMC participants will be able to participate in the online conference and attend the FLMC award ceremony online in September 2021.

Graduates of the FLMC programme are entitled to participate in the activities of FIDIC’s Future Leaders Group led by the Future Leaders Council (FLC). The group aims to promote and empower Future Leaders (FLs) within the FIDIC community to participate effectively in shaping the future of the Consulting Engineering Industry and provide networking opportunities and regular get-togethers.
