Recognising tomorrow's future leaders, today



For three decades, The Media Leader has been the home for UK media leadership. Last year we launched The Future 100 Club as part of our mission to not only build on that heritage, but to offer something different and relevant for a new generation.

Many of today’s leaders have grown up reading The Media Leader; absorbing the analysis, opinion, and thought-leadership written by our group of journalists, columnists, and industry peers, with many of our contributors – past and present – now leading some of the biggest organisations in our industry.

That is why we want to engage with the next generation of media leaders as we open the books to The Future 100 Club: Class of 2023 – an induction of brilliant minds who have been recognised as the future of our industry

The Future 100 Club brings together the most diverse group of professionals from across the media ecosystem. Unlike other groupings of rising stars or future leaders lists, there is no barrier or discrimination based on age, time spent in the industry, or current job title.

The four key values that each inductee will be judged upon will be their proven ability to embrace disruption, innovation, courage, and excellence; as we shine a light on 100 professionals each year who exist outside of the C-Suite, helping us understand how we can better educate and serve this industry for future generations.

Future 100 Club Supporting Partners

A huge thank you to all of our partners of The Future 100 Club. Without the support of these companies, we would not be able to reward the members of The Class of 2023 with free tickets to our events, bespoke conferences and networking opportunities, and platforms to speak at events and contribute to The Media Leader. It only costs a small amount to sponsor for the year, but it makes a huge difference to the future leaders of our industry. If you want to find out more, please email
