Guest experts on the program
A wide range of local, Australian, and international leadership experts have agreed to participate in the program.
Each month we will provide you with information about one or two of our expert guests. Based on this information, we’ll ask you to submit questions for us to collate. In some cases, we will record interviews with the experts, asking them your questions. And on other occasions, the guests will attend the group workshops or the monthly webinars. The interviews and webinars will be available for you to watch in your own time on our learning platform.
This will be a great opportunity to explore common challenges faced by women leaders and share ideas about how to overcome those challenges.
