Join us for this special one-off event as members of the Qld syndicate from our 2017 Next Generation of Female Leaders' program share what they learnt from interviewing Australia's leading CEOs and company directors.
Next Gen is a high level learning and development program for women in key management or executive roles. It increases the visibility of high potential women within their organisations and industries and provides them with the confidence and capacity to successfully engage with senior leadership and boards. 
A key aspect of the program is 'Project Getting Ahead' which requires participants to work in syndicates to interview a minimum of two leaders from any sector and work this into their presentation at the end of the program. The insights gained are invaluable and make for a great and interactive event.

Format for Leadership in Focus

Members of the program alumni will lead us into the evening, sharing experiences, learnings and key takeaways from their exchange with leaders.

The presentation will be followed by a guided panel discussion with directors that have been interviewed as part of the program to discuss leadership on a grander scale. The session will be facilitated by Claire Braund, Executive Director at Women on Boards and then discussion opened to the floor.

Come prepared with questions and comments for the panel and ready to engage with the WOB network to make some great personal and business connections.

Chatham House rule applies.
