The Scone Next Generation Leadership Program


Become a Steward of the Realm


E nterprising families around the world are consistently seeking leadership opportunities to cultivate, enhance and network their Next Generation family members. The Scone Project is a next generation (NxG) leadership program which is designed to develop the leadership potential of NxG family members who are born into prominent families of wealth and/or enterprise. It is a small, exclusive, by invitation-only event for ultra-affluent inheritors.

In the spring of 2020 family members will gather from around the globe at Scotland’s historic Scone Palace to inspire, interact, learn, engage and embrace their family heritage and explore opportunities for personal and professional growth with peers.  Participants will stay at Scone Palace and are encouraged to attend The Scone Project with their siblings, cousins or extended family.

The Scone Project NxG leadership program is hosted by William Murray, Viscount Stormont and facilitated by Francesco Lombardo FEA.

Scone Palace

The Scone Project is hosted in William’s family home, Scone Palace, the family seat and home of the Earls of Mansfield. Steeped in a 1000-year history, Scone Palace is the crowning place of Scottish Kings and the first site of Parliament in Scottish history.  The Palace has a unique history and heritage which participants are encouraged to engage with and explore during the program. The Scone Project believes that such history and heritage adds real context to the content of the program, and thus allows for key learnings to be imbued at a deeper level creating profound and lasting impact.
