Development of capable, knowledgeable and connected leaders

Since 2006, the Committee for Geelong has delivered leadership programs to support Geelong’s transformation into a world-class city-region.

Continued encouragement and mentoring of both emerging and existing leaders is essential to the successful transformation of Geelong. The Committee for Geelong remains confident that with our leadership programs, graduates will become part of a courageous group of people ready to lead our city-region to excellence and prosperity.

The Committee for Geelong’s leadership programs develop capable, knowledgeable and connected leaders from across business, government and community sectors. Participants expand their personal leadership skills, increase their knowledge about the challenges and opportunities shaping the region and gain insights into diverse sectors and industries. Most importantly, they take action to make a difference beyond the program and become part of an enduring and rewarding alumni.

The Committee for Geelong’s current leadership portfolio contains two programs: the flagship Leaders for Geelong program, together with a program for emerging leaders called Activate.

Previously, the Committee for Geelong has implemented programs called the LEAD (Leading, Educating, Advocating for Disability) Barwon Program and the Barwon Community Leadership Program (BCLP).

The LEAD Barwon Program project was funded by the Victorian Government and was designed to help ensure that the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was the best possible system for Victorians with a disability, together with their carers and families.

From 2011 until 2014, the Committee for Geelong delivered BCLP – also supported by the Victorian Government and generous local partners. This project was designed to support and develop leaders in Geelong’s socially and economically challenged communities.
