In a 2020 survey of Fellows, 91% told us that their Fellowship was a life-changing experience and 86% said that its positive impact would continue throughout their lives and careers.

These effects were both personal and professional. On a personal level, around 80% said they had become more confident, ambitious and fulfilled. Professionally, they were more respected, knowledgeable and internationally connected. As a result of their Fellowship, 58% were now leaders in their sectors and 94% had influenced others.

They were now able to influence senior management at their workplace (62%), policy-makers (50%), regulators and umbrella bodies (24%) and the UK government (15%). Some 26% had set up a new organisation relating to their Fellowship project, 31% had launched a new service and 31% had created a pilot at their workplace.

Many Fellows tell us about the increase in confidence and status that a Fellowship brings. Being a Fellow opened doors for them, overseas and at home, while their global knowledge and contacts showed them new and successful ways to approach their work.

In our survey, 100% of Fellows said they would recommend a Fellowship to others.
