A commercial property agency Marketing Manager has won a coveted place on Common Purpose’s streetwise mba programme, after being awarded the Future Face of Greater Birmingham.

Over 500 were in attendance at the awards ceremony, which took place at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall.  The awards celebrate rising stars from the Birmingham business community, with the overall Future Face of Greater Birmingham awarded a place on the innovative streetwise mba programme.

Marketing Manager Rebecca Halbert was named as a double winner as she also won the Future Face of Sales, Marketing and Communications award at the Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce’s Future Faces awards ceremony.  Rebecca has worked as a Fundraising Communications Officer for Parkinson’s UK in London before moving back to Birmingham as Millennium Point’s Marketing Manager. She is also a trustee for a local charity, Buddy Bag Foundation.

The streetwise mba is an intensive three-day programme which equips emerging leaders with the skills to better lead diverse teams, or work with diverse customers and stakeholders.   It focuses on leadership and Cultural Intelligence (CQ) and is outward-facing using the city as the classroom.  Developed with customers and based on what talented future leaders need, the streetwise mba delivers tangible benefits for people and organisations.  Using experiential learning and Common Purpose’s leadership framework of ‘Core and Flex’, the streetwise mba helps participants digest their learning, explore their own culture and values and translate this learning into changed leadership behaviours. 

Louise Teboul, Operations Director for Common Purpose UK and one of the judges for the Future Faces awards, said “We are delighted to support the Future Faces Awards, for the second year, it’s recognition of great emerging talent in the region. Rebecca was a worthy winner against strong competition and I’m looking forward to working with her on the streetwise mba.”

The streetwise mba runs in Birmingham in November, with pre-course online modules available from late October. The programme also runs in Manchester and London, as well as in select countries internationally. For more information, visit the streetwise mba webpage.
