THE next generation of Australian executive leaders gathered in an intimate event this month to network and learn from two very different, but equally impressive business leaders.
The group of talented aspiring leaders joined AMMA and special guests for the launch of the Future Leaders Network in Melbourne on 1 June.
The inaugural event was headlined by Sky News political commentator, television anchor and former Chief of Staff to the Prime Minister of Australia, Peta Credlin, and successful fashion designer, entrepreneur and international businesswoman Karen Gee.
AMMA Director Workplace Relations Amanda Mansini was proud to launch the network.
“We were incredibly fortunate to have two high calibre leaders of business, politics and media, not to mention role models, supporting the launch of the inaugural Future Leaders Network event and sharing their experiences,” Ms Mansini said.
“It was great to hear their personal leadership journeys and learn from their insights and advice.”
AMMA launched this new industry initiative to help develop the next wave of leadership, not only in the resources and energy sector, but all industries across Australia.
The Network brings together talented and ambitious professionals, exposing them to invaluable insights to leadership success stories, development opportunities and connections.
“While there are existing support groups and networking style events in the industry, AMMA noticed a gap in those catering precisely for the calibre and ambitions of the exclusive group of people invited to take part in the Network,” Ms Mansini said.
“These are individuals who are already successful in their careers. They join us from a range of disciplines across the industry, with commonality in terms of their paths to leadership and passion for achieving greater levels of success.
“We are committed to ensuring our country’s future is in the very best hands, which is why we have specifically hand-picked a network of budding future managers, leaders and executives.”
The Network will launch in Brisbane and Perth in September 2018.
The Network will also host a range of events throughout the year, providing the tools, experience and insights required to set aspiring leaders on a clear path to leadership.
If you know of a leader, or future leader, on a path to executive leadership and keen to grow their network please nominate here.
