Future Leaders Series

The ‘last’ first step you’ll take in growing your business.

Emerging companies require access to the best people and advice when they can least afford it. Leaders will provide you with a seat at the table of the most influencial business people who provide the knowledge and networks to assist you to grow your business.

Together with our Industry Experts and Industry Partners, we’ve helped many leading companies grow, exit or enter new markets and territories.

It's not by chance we understand that being successful in business means you need support, guidance & mentoring. This is why we created Future Leaders.

With a focus on skilling up the Founder/CEO of the business, Future Leaders provides exclusive access to personal, professional and business growth, trade, and investment opportunities.

Each year Leaders selects up to 16 leading companies to become Future Leaders Members. Members formally participates in the Future Leaders Series for 12 months, followed by a further 2 years involvement as an Alumni Member.

Hear from some of our Members on their experience with Leaders.

Developing you as a leader in business, supporting your growth and inspiring you with real world connections.

The Future Leaders Series is designed to provide the latest knowledge on key issues facing Founders and CEOs in growing their businesses into national and/or international organisations.

Our Industry Experts are selected based on their experience and understanding of the challenges facing growing companies and are here to guide and support you with:

  • Access to Business, Industry and Government Leaders;
  • Increased management skills and connectivity, including life skills;
  • Harnessing the strength and resources of business leaders;
  • Growing your reach and network across the International Leaders network via our reciprocal rights arrangement;
  • Access to the Leaders Investment Centre.

"Leaders provided the ability to network, foster new business relationships, and ultimately to take advantage of Industry Experts and their knowledge.

The contacts made proved invaluable, and investor relationships via Leaders have been formed to the tune of $10M."
