Every organisation has growth plans and in order to grow they need multiple leaders across their business. Being able to think like a leader and then respond strategically is the difference between success and constant frustration.
This inaugural session addresses the importance of lifting your leadership capabilities, through valuable leadership fundamentals that can be adopted in your day to day routine.
Symon Brewis-Weston from the Commonwealth Bank of Australia will be facilitating this relevant session to young leaders developing their career. Recently Symon returned from India where he witnessed empowered individuals create positive changes through visionary, expansive and courageous leadership.
