More than $20,000 in scholarships are available to south-west residents wanting to improve their leadership skills and make a difference in their communities.
Leadership Great South Coast and its program partners are offering a record number of scholarships to 2018 applicants.
The annual development program is aimed at emerging and new leaders sourced from the diversity of business, government and community sectors within the region.
Executive officer Amanda Hennessy said 90 graduates had completed the program in its five years of operation. “Our program connects and develops local leaders, all with the aim of empowering them to do great things,” Ms Hennessy said. “And our participants are genuinely doing great things in their communities.”
Graduate Jacob Taylor said the experience was life changing. “There are few personal or professional development programs out there that offer the opportunities, connections, personal growth and challenges that this one does,” he said. “It will change you.”
