The Townsville Enterprise Emerging Leaders Program proudly sponsored by Queensland Country Credit Union, offers a unique opportunity to middle and executive level management and business owners.

The Program runs over 14 months and is aimed at enhancing the critical skills, knowledge and aptitude required to become a community and/or industry leader. It responds to a recognised need to develop a pool of leadership talent to progress our city and the region.


There are three components of the Program, the first is that each participant is partnered with a high profile Mentor of their choice or from a list of engaged Mentors. These Mentors are highly successful business, political, community and industry leaders who are an integral part of this region and expose the participants to a wealth of knowledge.


The next component is a full day module held once a month. Each is themed to a particular topic that is relevant to the city and region. At these modules Emerging Leaders will have unique opportunities to meet high profile guest speakers and key decision makers, establishing connections and contacts that are extremely valuable to their futures.


The third component is the delivery of a project. The Emerging Leaders are presented with a project that they will deliver within project teams, these projects are a platform for organisations and the Emerging Leaders to integrate and produce “relevant community outcomes” whilst utilising, embracing and enhancing their skills.

As an Emerging Leader, you will be educated on the issues, opportunities and challenges that impact on the Townsville North Queensland region locally, nationally and globally.

One of the significant goals of the Townsville Enterprise Emerging Leaders Program is for the participants to connect in a meaningful way and share their knowledge by nominating for a board position, becoming a committee member within their chosen community, volunteering or developing their own way to donate time and energy.
