Find Your Way Development Programme

Career stage: Junior

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR THE 2021-22 PROGRAMME AND WILL CLOSE AT 9.00AM ON MONDAY 6 SEPTEMBER 2021

What is Find Your Way?

Find Your Way is a transformative professional development leadership programme for senior and emerging managers in orchestras and classical music organisations who have aspirations for leadership. It offers participants to look boldly to the future, to examine, broaden and improve on current practice for the long-term benefit of the sector. The 9-month programme, starting in October 2021, offers professional development based around a tailored Individual Development Plan co-developed with an experienced coach.

Richard Wigley, Wigley Arts Management Ltd, and Managing Director of the Ulster Orchestra, leads the Find Your Way programme with Andy Beaumont, leadership trainer. Fiona Harvey, ABO Education & Youth Ensembles Consultant, is the programme’s Project Manager.

Who is it for?

We are looking to select 6 participants who will either be working in the orchestral, classical music and arts sectors, and who have at least five years’ paid work experience; or they are orchestral musicians looking to develop their leadership. There is one place in the cohort of 6 for a musician.

What is included in the programme?

At the heart of Find Your Way is the commitment of ambitious managers and musicians to drive their own knowledge, skills and profile, in combination with mentoring from orchestra CEOs. Guest speakers from the classical music sector are also invited to Find Your Way group meetings, to provide different perspectives and additional learning.
