New Leaders Development Program, Give for Good (2019)

My favourite component of the learning experience was seeing the close bonds we all formed with fellow members. Although we did not spend a significant amount of time together, the cohort connected quickly, which allowed for open discussion and debate on key leadership topics throughout the program. I finished the program equipped with a toolkit of information and resources that I could use for an array of leadership discussions and activities. With my recently obtained knowledge, I wanted to support those around me to help everyone become a better leader. I immediately approached our CEO and offered to facilitate learning sessions with operations and senior-level staff on topics like ‘your personality and its impact on others’ and ‘performance building’. The series has since evolved into quarterly sessions and now forms a crucial part of an emerging leaders development program within the organisation. I still feel very fortunate to have received a Give for Good Scholarship to partake in a leadership program with Melbourne Business School. The impact it has had on my life has been tremendous. Upon completion, I had a newfound appreciation for learning, and soon after, I enrolled to complete a Master of Business Administration, which I will finish in 2022.
