I feel extremely privileged to have had the opportunity to complete the McKinsey ELP Program. The course was absolutely fantastic. The guest speakers were diverse, inspiring and engaging. The facilitators were brilliant and the cohort were amazing.

Not only did I learn a tremendous amount about myself and leading a team but importantly I developed some great connections and broadened by my network. I am extremely grateful to have been able to receive a scholarship for this program and am looking forward to converting my learnings into making more of an impact in reducing suicide in farming communities

McKinsey Young Leaders Forum is a foundational leadership program designed to accelerate the development of rising leaders and would benefit high potential future leaders with 7-12 years of work experience.

Participants will join a cross-industry cohort for a blended program. Participants will join a 4-day in-person event in Sydney to explore their personal leadership and the foundations of leading high performing teams. Create an external support network for ongoing peer-coaching and support, and complete a digital course on the principles of leading teams.

Jamie McGleave, General Manager at Propel Youth Arts WA joined the program in 2021, Jamie shares:

Being able to participate in this year’s Young Leaders Forum allowed me a rare opportunity to step back from my day-to-day work and really examine my own approach to leadership on a holistic level.

I have been able to take my learnings back to my organisation and have started developing productive and sustainable new habits as a result of the forum.
