The Leaders for Geelong program is providing our city-region with inspired and well connected visionaries, who are better prepared to lead their own organisations and the wider community.
Leaders for Geelong (LfG) is a two-year program that develops personal leadership capacity through a unique learning experience, designed to address the current social, economic, and environmental issues of importance to the Geelong city-region. In the first year, participants attend a minimum of 1-2 events per month where they are challenged and inspired by renowned leaders and subject matter experts, undertake ‘behind the scenes’ tours, discuss case studies and participate in a range of other activities. The second year sees participants working in teams on a community based project of regional significance.
The transformation of Victoria’s Second City calls for a new generation of business and community leaders with the skills, knowledge and networks to guide our growing region innovatively and sustainably into the future.
