WFTV launches Fearless Leadership Programme

Women in Film & TV UK (WFTV) has launched its second annual WFTV Fearless Leadership Programme with the expansion of this year’s cohort from eight to 12 senior leaders from across the industry.

The aim of the scheme is to equip women with training and coaching in leadership skills to enable them to thrive in senior roles. The successful cohort will take part in a course of masterclasses over the next six months led by professional development coach Tracy Forsyth.

The Fearless Leadership Programme comprises group coaching, 1-2-1 coaching and masterclasses, covering topics such as persuading and influencing, landing key messages, motivating, and empowering teams and setting work culture as well as profile-raising and thought leadership.

Nadine Marsh-Edwards, co-founder and executive producer whose credits include the BAFTA and RTS winning Joe All Alone, and BAFTA nominated An Englishman in New York, from the 2023 cohort said: “Our industry is going through some very challenging times and the fact that Tracy has been in a senior leadership role means that she has a deep knowledge and understanding of what we do as leaders and the skills we need now and moving forward in order to survive and thrive.”

Applications close on Monday 1 July 2024 at 17:00; all details can be found here.

CEO Katie Bailiff said: “WFTV’s vision is a thriving, inclusive and creative film and television industry where women are supported, empowered, and celebrated at every level. At this difficult time in the industry, it is crucial we support our senior industry women so they can lead with confidence and compassion. We are delighted to partner once again with Sunbelt Rentals on this year’s Fearless Leadership Programme.”

Forsyth added: “I work with many senior leaders across the creative industries who have similar leadership challenges. By creating this group of leaders, we are not only able to work as a group to develop and master skills but also become a powerful cohort who can support each other through the rest of their careers.”
