Leaders for Geelong


The Leaders for Geelong program is providing the region with inspired and well connected visionaries who are in a position of knowledge and prepared for leadership in their own organisations and in the community. 

The program builds individual leadership capacity and educates emerging leaders about the challenges and opportunities impacting on the region. It nurtures people with the skills and aspirations to lead, develops important networks, and equips them for leadership in their own organisations and in the wider community.

Launched in 2006, this two year program has now graduated more than 200 individuals. These people come from large and small businesses, not for profit and statutory organisations. They form an alumni who understand the challenges and opportunities shaping the region, who engage with opportunities to address them, and who are connected in an enduring and rewarding network. 

For more information about the program please contact Rosemary White on 5227 8293.
