PwC sponsors tomorrow’s leaders

PwC sponsors tomorrow's leaders

PricewaterhouseCoopers is to sponsor a new awards scheme called Leaders of Tomorrow. The scheme is designed to identify and reward young people for showing ability, enterprise, leadership and excellence in their chosen field.

The awards are organised in association with Young Enterprise and are open to young people between the ages of 16 and 22. PwC is looking for young people who show a certain talent or ambition to succeed. For example, someone who wants to become prime minister, run a fashion house or captain the England cricket team could be nominees.

Peter Smith, UK chairman of PwC said: “As one of the largest employers of graduates in Britain, PricewaterhouseCoopers is very happy to sponsor this new, annual awards scheme which encourages talented young people to succeed.”

After selecting regional winners, three national winners will be selected.

Regional winners will get a Compaq Armada laptop computer and national winners will go on an all expenses paid trip to New York and get the opportunity to shadow Jim Schiro, CEO of PwC. All those shortlisted will receive professional career development training from PwC. Nomination details are available on www.leaders-of-tomorrow.co.uk.
