We want you all to give it your best shot, so to help you on your way I’ve compiled a list of my five top tips for applicants:

As I sat in the annual gathering of Skoll Scholars last week, I was reminded that leading is about "being," not just "doing."

I recently spent a day in the company of a group of CEOs, Chairs and leaders from the social housing world at the Leadership Summit 2015- ‘Leading by design’. I went there, by the kind invitation of the National Housing Federation who are my sponsors on the Clore Social Leadership Programme. I hoped to hear what leaders in social housing thought could be done to stem the tide of the UK housing crisis and how we could better influence the political scene, particularly with a looming general election. The event proved to be highly illuminating.

Jane Bruce has decided many charities are just too shy after spending time with social success story Social Bite.
Since the turn of the year, I have been enjoying a placement at Social Bite as part of the Clore Social Leadership Programme. Social Bite is probably the hottest social enterprise in Scotland at the moment and not just because George Clooney is about to visit!

Over a year ago, I walked into the doctors surgery and had a conversation that still sends a chill down my spine. I went to see my GP, something I rarely do, because my closest friends had encouraged me to go and get help. I didn't know what was wrong with me but I was clear that all was not well.

When I first considered what to do with the blank canvas for my research, which is presented to us all at the start of the Fellowship, I was initially struck by decision-paralysis. The multitude of research topics, as well as forms of presenting that research, almost made for too much choice!
