  1. Meet and learn from the leaders: Highly successful business growth is delivered and sustained by leaders who are open to constructive challenge and willing to commit themselves to optimizing their leadership performance. You will meet leaders who are high impact and low ego, they are visible role models and coaches. They create a compelling purpose, alignment and relentless energy for the pursuit of optimised business results and people engagement
  2. Meet and learn from the front line teams: Leaders are only one part of a successful business. Front line workers are the means through which a business interacts with the outside world, and are the primary source of productivity and growth within any organization
  3. Create a learning log and action plan to take home and implement within your business: Participants will leave the conference with actionable objectives for growing their business and strengthening their leadership
