In a nutshell we exist to network, develop and recognise young professionals from any sector across Greater Birmingham. Our members are from a vast range of sectors, making our network uniquely diverse and strong.
Whether you’re a business looking to professionally develop your talented employees, or an individual committed to developing your career in Greater Birmingham, Future Faces can help.
We are proud to span across Greater Birmingham's regions. Birmingham alone is the youngest city in Europe, with under 25s accounting for nearly 40% of the population. There are over 400 schools, 15 universities and three university colleges within one hour’s drive of the city! The universities are working together to put a strong sales pitch to students and employers in order to retain young talent and Future Faces is proud to play our part in developing and retaining this top talent throughout their careers.
These monthly events are designed to help members develop their leadership and professional skills (across any sector) by learning from some of the best in the business.
Our social events happen every month and give members the opportunity to network with their peers in a fun environment at the best venues our region has to offer.
The only awards dinner to recognise the talent of all young professionals in Greater Birmingham. Members can be recognised for their talents by entering the awards.
Members have the opportunity to be mentored by a more experienced Chamber member, or to be a mentor themselves to some of their younger peers.
For members that would like to be more hands on, you can join the Future Faces Committee which will help to profile yourself within the region and develop new skills and responsibilities.
Not only do we give our members the chance to fundraise for our chosen charity, we also provide members with exclusive discounts & offers by partnering with companies such as Independent Birmingham, Verve Poetry Festival, the BBC and more!
An annual membership for an individual is just £150 + VAT. We also offer a bulk a membership discount for companies who are interested in purchasing five Future Faces memberships or more.
‘I always look forward to the Future Faces events in my calendar! I know I will be learning something great at the monthly training sessions from business leaders and making new friends in different industries at the networking events.’
‘Being a member of Future Faces is fantastic for connecting with likeminded people in the city. I’ve made some great connections but also friends from the networking events I’ve been to. What’s more, the events put on are extremely valuable in terms of personal and professional development.’
‘As the founder and MD of a new business, my Future Faces membership has been invaluable in connecting me with the right types of people I need to grow Notepad quickly. Through their regular meetups and professional development opportunities, I've won several new clients, met loads of ambitious like-minded young professionals, and found my accountant and financial mentor. It's just awesome to be part of an active and diverse community that work so hard to help each other succeed.’
Typically, Future Faces run two events per month; one as a social networking event and one more structured event focussed on professional development. In addition, the Future Faces annual dinner and awards takes place each September with more details to be announced soon.
