The program focus is personal growth. Participants work with recognised industry leaders to explore their individual strengths, increase their understanding about effective leadership and refine strategies for improving personal performance. Group work and social activities will provide opportunities for developing and strengthening professional networks.

The collaborative learning model on which the program is based includes interactive seminars, case studies and personality profiling, supplemented with experiential activities and reflection. Industry leaders present the latest thinking about leadership, personal development and organisational effectiveness. A major syndicate project is an integral part of the program. This activity is designed to challenge thinking and stimulate ideas about new ways of achieving results with people. The success of this project also depends on how effectively members can work as part of a high performance, task focused team.
