I already knew the people involved in leading the Fellowship so didn’t need to be convinced about the quality of the delivery. But our objectives were to support local business and charities while developing Freeths’ future leaders. Sponsoring the Fellowship since its inception in 2016 has allowed us to do all three. 
Freeths are committed to shaping the next generation of lawyers and the Fellowship has been a key part of that. The Fellowship works with our people to combine technical excellence with a more human, emotionally intelligent approach. Each of the participants have commented to me about how they personally look at the world in a different way following the Fellowship and both they and us are benefitting from their new tools and enthusiasm. 
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Fellowship to others. Every year I speak to a potential candidate to reassure them that their time will be well spent. It isn’t difficult because we have all our previous candidates who speak so positively about their experiences. One of the things I like about the Fellowship is the differing background of the candidates who come together from the private, public and voluntary sectors to use their combined skills to support a charity. So much charitable work has been advanced by this approach and any charity that has the opportunity to benefit shouldn’t hesitate to do so.
