Graduates of the 2017 Tasmanian Leaders Program have presented their projects to a collection of Tasmanian Leaders’ Alumni, friends, family and community leaders.

The Project Presentations event allows the most recent graduates an opportunity to share the outcomes of their community projects undertaken as part of their program experience.

Now in its twelfth year, the program provides aspiring Tasmanian leaders with a fresh outlook to confidently work and communicate with others and achieve more in both their personal and professional lives.

A key component of the Tasmanian Leaders Program is the undertaking of a project by each of the participants in small syndicate groups. Projects benefit the Tasmanian community, and are ‘big enough to do, small enough to matter’.

“Participants have the opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge”, said General Manager Angela Driver.

The four projects presented were; Championing Gender Equity through Education in the Tasmanian School Curriculum, Impact100 Support, S.E.A.T. (Sit, Engage, Appreciate, Talk) and Community Energy Efficiency Project.

The Tasmanian Leaders Program (TLP) identifies, promotes and develops aspiring business and community leaders, creating significant future benefits for both them and Tasmania.

Each year, a new group of participants with one thing in common – high leadership potential – is selected, deliberately from diverse backgrounds, to come together regularly over a one year period to learn and cultivate a range of specific competencies crucial to leaders.
