100 Thought Leaders

An accelerator for future thought leaders and pioneers

Change the world

We are thrilled to introduce you to our brand-new, radical learning platform, 100 Thought Leaders. Created and led by AWA CEO and influential thought leader,  Simon Powers, this one-of-a-kind program draws on his 20 years experience in thought-leadership and staying on the cutting edge. With our unique, rolling format, you can take as much time as you need to complete the program, with a 12 month-subscription.

If you want to be the next inspirational conference speaker, influential thought leader, or someone who wants to make a positive difference in the world, this program is for you.

Why you need to be here

This program is for the next generation of leaders who want to both make their mark and a difference in the world.

Perhaps you are forging your own path and would benefit from being part of a community of like-minded peers to provide a safe space for feedback and support as you experiment with new ideas.

Maybe you’re planning your next move, but something is preventing you from taking the right next step.

Whatever your goal, our program has something for you, thanks to our unique approach that will enable you to continually grow, learn and renew.

We’ll show you how to stay on the leading edge, how to carve out your own niche, and how to make an impact on the world stage.

  • Understand how to stay on the cutting edge, remain relevant, and make the next big breakthroughs that challenge the status quo
  • Grow from a “9-5” professional into an industry recognised thought leader
  • Get out of the contractor trap where you can’t get the authority or influence to make a difference but can’t go back to permanent because the salaries don’t make sense.
  • Reap the financial fruit of your experience and expertise
  • Know how to continually learn something new and get better at it
  • Be known for your change-making and impact creation and receive the recognition you deserve
  • Up your game, raise your profile, share your expertise and elevate your business
  • Develop your own models or methodology and be ‘known’ for it

This your chance to elevate yourself, to push the boundaries of what is possible, and to maximise your potential.

How does it work?

Designed with an agile and growth mindset the program’s flexible agenda evolves as the world changes around us. Our goal is to build thought-leadership skills that will help you leverage the latest opportunities in the world of work and incorporate a range of new ideas, models and themes into your own content, enabling you to make a positive difference in your work and the wider world in which you live.

  • Join at anytime thanks to our unique rolling format
  • Attend as many live-streamed sessions as you can during the year (from 8th November)
