Future Leaders 2018When you send your most promising employees to the Future Leaders eXperience, you assure the sound continuity of success in your business, but you also make a solid investment in every other employee that participants interact with today and in the future as they tap their passion and energy for food retailing and learn how to reinvigorate every other member of their team back in their office or store.

Take advantage of steep savings by registering a group of 10 or more for Future Leaders eXperience.

The Group You Send Matters

Ideal candidates for the Future Leaders eXperience are a company's highest-potential employees, those who have already demonstrated some leadership skills and who senior executives imagine could take on significant managerial positions as their careers develop. 

Over the three-day eXperience, the industry's strongest emerging leaders will come out with the expertise and management skills required to lead their own teams in the 21st-century workplace. 

The Value in Future Leaders eXperience


Using leadership skills learned at Future Leaders eXperience—including relationship building, communication, coaching, and celebrating—will ignite team performance and deliver the right business outcomes.


Managers who go through the Future Leaders eXperience become exceptional leaders who power change. They learn to provide the support and knowledge teams need to feel empowered, trusted, and engaged.



The FMI Food Retail Leader Certificate demonstrates that Future Leader eXperience attendees have the knowledge, skills and expertise as an emerging leader in the food retail industry.


An effective team is one that's engaged with their business. Managers will learn how to engage and inspire their teams, a leadership skill that can significantly accelerate results for your organization. People don't want to be managed - they want to be led.


Leading people is hard enough without complicating it with buzzwords and academia. Through our partnership with Root, we'll give managers simple processes that are easy to remember and use. Every. Single. Day.


Future Leaders eXperience involves a learner-centric approach, where facilitators guide rather than teach. Managers own the experience, openly sharing strengths, stories, and struggles—and best of all—learning from each other.
