Emma Kent selected for UK-GBC Future Leaders Programme Share this article

Emma Kent, Associate at Cundall, has been selected as one of 23 built environment professionals to take part in this year’s UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) Future Leaders programme.

The UK-GBC programme brings together a group of early-stage professionals from across the industry, to take part in a unique programme of leadership and innovation. The programme runs over a period of 12 months and is focused around five key learning events - a two day residential programme, three innovation labs, and a final project presentation to board level Directors from all the companies supporting the programme.

The course provides a forum for its selected leaders to discuss some of the most critical issues that the sector will face in the future and to challenge participants to work collaboratively in order to address them. The successful participants have been drawn from across all sectors of the built environment from organisations including Land Securities, Bilfinger GVA, HS2, Sir Robert McAlpine and Willmott Dixon.

Emma is delighted to have been selected by the UK-GBC to participate. She has already attended the two day residential event with the other Future Leaders. Emma says: “The residential programme was an incredibly intense couple of days where I met some amazing people, learnt a huge amount about innovation and personal leadership and had the opportunity to put some of the teaching into practice through the group innovation sessions. I’m really excited to see what the next year will bring and how our ideas will develop and be received by our Directors."

Emma graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Nottingham and joined Cundall in February 2015 as an Associate in the Structural Engineering Team. Since joining, she has worked on a variety of projects including a £30 million new build office in Slough and several  creative re-use projects including listed buildings. She is the London Chapter leader for Urbanistas, an organisation that offers support and networking to women passionate about the built environment, and is Chairman of the Editorial Advisory Panel for the Journal of the Institution of Civil Engineers.

"It was a dark and frosty night..."

It’s minus 1°C and I’m standing in the pitch black night, ice crystals forming on the ground around my feet. Around me, dark shapes move stealthily in the night. Nearby, a candle burns in glass jar, the glow brightening the gloom. One of the dark shapes gathers speed and begins to approach the candle at speed...
