About the program

- Leadership development relevant to the current level of appointment;
- A period of higher duties, secondment or stretch project;
- Participation in a Velocity Project aimed at building collaboration, innovation, strategic thinking and presentation skills to resolve a real organisational issue;
- Mentoring or coaching;
- Participation in networking events with the Corporate Services Executive and others in the program.
