That's a Wrap!
Our first Emerging Leaders program has wrapped up for the year. It has been an interesting and inspiring time, with those involved giving resounding positive feedback.
The program aimed to provide a good mix of the higher concepts of leadership with the more practical aspects of communication and self-care. Nominees were involved in a number of activities both here and in Brisbane, and heard from many inspiring business leaders including:
- Coffee entrepreneur, board member, adjunct professor and philanthropist Phillip Di Bella;
- Performance specialist Stephanie Bown;
- Former CEO of Oporto Craig Tozer; and
- Toowoomba Regional Council’s Mayor, Paul Antonio.
As this year saw the launch of the program, we have been learning as we go and have highlighted challenges we need to address for next year. For example, finding a way to release our field staff from their onsite commitments so that they can attend every session. We plan to open this program to new nominees in 2022 as well as providing ongoing opportunities to the young leaders who attended this year. The best is yet to come!
