With greater insight you can adapt your approach to increase effectiveness. The program will commence with a panel of ‘Local Legends’ to inspire and motivate by sharing their success stories working on the Peninsula.

Day 2 Leading Others

Enhance your ability to lead and influence outcomes through a greater understanding of what drives and motivates others, developing influencing and negotiating skills, and learning how to work with others to create positive and productive communities.There is a two-week break between Day Two & Three to apply skills and prepare for Day Three.

Day 3 Empowerment & activation

Put theory into action and build confidence in your power to make a difference in an area where positive change is needed.The program conclusion includes a ‘Shark Tank’ style presentation from each participant to a panel of our ‘Local Legend’ business founders and operators who will provide feedback and advice on optimising your future plans.
