We have some wonderful speakers and panels lined up for the day, and will top it off with the Alumni Awards Ceremony and dinner. The two awards are for Leadership Excellence and Business Excellence which will be voted upon by our 142 graduates located all over the world.

The Business Excellence Award is for a Flying Start graduate who has proven business skills. Business owners and managers are eligible. Business excellence is demonstrated through entrepreneurial spirit and vision, strong financial performance, innovation and strategic direction.  This person should demonstrate excellent client relationships, sustainability and growth in employee numbers. An excellent business person should consistently demonstrate personal integrity, and focus on results, having community and industry impact.

The Leadership Excellence Award is for a Flying Start graduate who has proven leadership skills. Business owners, managers and non-managers may possess strong leadership and are eligible. A strong leader demonstrates a unique ability to build and articulate a vision, inspires collaboration and co-operation in others, and implements strategies and change.  Leaders often act as role models or mentors. They act with personal integrity, helping others to succeed, leading change in an industry or community and challenging the status quo. They set high standards for themselves and others, communicate powerfully and give honest, constructive feedback.

Be sure to keep an eye on our website latest news and social media channels for speaker announcements. Our current 1st year trainees will contribute on April 7th, working together as the alumni conference media team. They will supply regular updates via the website, Facebook and Twitter through reports,  photos and videos
