The Townsville Enterprise Emerging Leaders Program offers a unique opportunity to middle and executive level management and business owners. The Program runs over 12 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:
Each participant is partnered with a high profile Mentor. The Program’s Mentors are highly successful business, political, community and industry leaders specially selected to expose the participants to a wealth of knowledge.
Each month the participants will attend a module themed to a topic relevant to the growth of the Townsville North Queensland region. These modules give participants access to high profile speakers broadening their outlook and allowing them to develop connections that may become valuable in their later careers.
Module topics include:
- Ethics, Governance & Directorship
- Access to International, National and Regional Markets
- Government & Political Relationships
- Economic Development & Defence
- Not-for-profit, Law & Order, Poverty
- Tourism, Events & Sport
- Business Competitiveness, Marketing, Media & PR
- Health & Education
The participants are grouped into small teams and presented with a project of significance to the Townsville North Queensland region. The project component of the Program provides participants with the opportunity to work with colleagues outside of their own industry and deliver a project with a positive community outcome.
