What happens if I miss a session?  Can the sessions be recorded so that I can watch at a later time?

Where are the live sessions held?

For groups that are from the same agency/organisation
Live sessions (Leadership Forums) are held onsite, depending on room availability, at the offices of the participating students. (Additional travel costs apply for locations outside of the Greater Sydney region.  This is charged at cost, per event).  
Where participants are located in various locations, the option is often available to either Video Conference small numbers of remote staff into the live session held Onsite OR we can host the entire meeting virtually, inviting cohort members into a private online session.

For groups that are from different agencies/organisations
Live sessions are typically delivered online in a virtual meeting room using video conferencing software. 

When are the live sessions scheduled?

Live sessions are scheduled approximately every 6 weeks after the launch date.

This program is suited to all managers and leaders who have staff reporting to them and are responsible for results. From team leaders to director level, each participant will be given skills that they can take into their roles to be more effective at getting great results from their people.

We keep the maximum number of participants in each cohort to 12:
