Doctor of Business Leadership - AGSL at Torrens University (2019)

In 2019, I commenced the Doctor of Business Leadership with the Australian Graduate School of Leadership at Torrens University Australia. My enrolment received vital scholarship support through AGSL and the Australian Scholarships Foundation. The content and impact of the program has exceeded my expectations. The opportunity to dive deep into my personal leadership methodology and how it affects the organisations I work with has been enormously valuable. What I’ve learned to date has directly contributed to the work I do as a not-for-profit director and executive; within the first year of starting the program I'm already seeing its impacts on my own practice and its contribution to improved organisational processes and outcomes. Stimulating and challenging, it has me firing on all cylinders and thinking more creatively than ever before. Recommended highly.
