Bringing global leaders together to shape the future


INK Future Makers (IFM) is a deeply curated program that enables global leaders  to craft, hone, and creatively express their passion and set out a vision to inspire action and change for a better world. You will be part of a unique community of leaders who are shaping this century through their dreams and determination.


The pandemic has blurred the lines between our professional and personal lives. With Work from Home being a way of life, the leadership style needs to embrace digital tools to be effective. This is also the century where diversity is not a checklist item but an area of competitive advantage.

For the past decade, INK has worked with game changers with diversity of age, gender, geography, discipline and sexual orientation to built tools to tell stories of companies, individuals, social movements and ideas. In that process, INK has carved a globally vibrant, diverse and inclusive community that has positively impacted the global economy and created social good.

INK Future Makers is a program where you can identify your purpose and your personal brand and become part of that growing community to shape your future and that of your organization.



The IFM Program starts with a 100-day expedition of self discovery that helps you create and deliver your personal brand and story
