Connect with like-minded people and develop your skills to unlock new opportunities. Because with the right support, there’s no limit to what you can achieve.

Helping you thrive

Generation Next membership gives you access to a range of support to take with you through your career but here are a few highlights…



Our networking events give you the opportunity to connect with likeminded individuals and make potentially valuable business contacts in a relaxed environment. You can also link up with a mentor through our mentoring scheme to boost your professional development.



At our webinars, we will welcome industry experts to teach you the skills and knowledge you need to get where you want to go.



Get inspired and develop your skills with unique insight from business leaders based in the East Midlands, which we welcome as our guest speakers and bloggers.



Engage with our board of champions and shape our membership offering, while also accessing opportunities to get involved in lobbying activity to make your voice heard by the region’s decision makers.

What our members say

“It’s great to be recognised by Generation Next as a Future Leader and a real encouragement to know others have faith in not just my company, but also in me as its founder. Particularly as a young founder, it’s common to experience imposter syndrome and feel like you don’t know enough to run your own company, so this is a fantastic confidence boost to have someone recognise my potential and validate my leadership skills.”
Kate Walker, Founder of ExpHand Prosthetics – winner of the Future Leader Award 2021
“Generation Next has been brilliant for me. Just a little recognition from people I would never usually meet has helped a lot with my confidence. Slowly as I come off the tools and continue to blag my way through running a business it is reassuring to know the team are there for my daft questions.”
Daniel Jones, Owner of Professional Heating Solutions – winner of the Breakthrough Award 2021
“I know looking back at my career I would have really welcomed a network like Generation Next. The project is here to support the next generation of business leaders in their career journeys. Whether you are looking at getting your next promotion, thinking of starting your own business or you are just looking to develop your knowledge, experiences and meet likeminded connections, the network can help you build your future within the East Midlands.”
Lucy Robinson, Generation Next lead and director of resources at East Midlands Chamber
