Emerging Leaders CIRCLE

The “Emerging Leaders In Conversation with…” Series brings together contemporary leaders in an informal and trusted environment. Designed to inspire your emerging leaders, this Series provides a forum for Australia’s most dynamic leaders to share their professional insights and personal stories in an intimate setting.

This program has been specifically developed to assist organisations in nurturing their emerging talent, providing tomorrow’s leaders with a rare opportunity to engage with today’s leading business professionals and create new relationships by meeting their peers from across industry.

The Emerging Leaders Program has been created to:

  • Connect your emerging leaders with their peers in other organisations

  • Provide a forum for emerging leaders to learn from others’ experiences

  • Share perspectives across a broad range of industries and sectors


The Series comprises regular briefings held in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra, and run from 5:30pm to 7:15pm.

Each session features a one-on-one discussion with our guest of honour, followed by an open Q&A session with the audience in a relaxed and collegial environment.
