Who we are, what we do.


Place Leadership Academy is the new co-creation, innovation and event subsidiary of Future Place Leadership

We lead a consultancy for cities, regions and countries in place branding and placemaking. We are doers. But.

Over the years our training sessions and workshops have been attended and praised by economic development professionals, place branders, placemakers and talent attraction practitioners from all over the world. 

Our company is based on Nordic inspired values of co-creation, trust and collaboration. We have learned that these are both practical and shared by many places. These values help people come together. 

We are opening a new co-creation lab for places. All workshops, webinars, conferences and online trainings will be carried out under Place Leadership Academy.

The Academy’s purpose is to provide a platform for cities, regions and countries to learn, develop and innovate.

Our services are:

  1. Learning lab – offline and online trainings
  2. Co-creation lab – our upcoming innovation projects
  3. Conferences  – be inspired and network
  4. Study visits – learn and get inspired by the best in class

Our approach centres on co-creation. Over the years we have witnessed the power of the collective intelligence and seen the creativity that happens when we put our partners together and build the trust to explore best and new practices together. We create value by leading professionals to share their experiences, discuss their challenges and create new, innovative solutions.

The Academy is run and owned by Future Place Leadership, a Stockholm based Nordic management consultancy specialising in the development, innovation and marketing of places.
