Great Leaders Are Made

For emerging female leaders looking to grow into an executive level role

The Great Leaders Are Made (GLAM™) Program for Women in Leadership is Australia’s most successful leadership training program specifically designed to empower current and future female leaders with real-world best practice leadership skills. In addition, we focus on further development of, self-awareness, self-leadership, career and your own brand leadership management skills.

Since 2011, of the 700+ attendees of the GLAM program over 50% were promoted within their current organization, while many other attendees were considered for future promotion or joined new employers at a more senior level, within 1 year of completing the program. Practical development and empowerment of women in your organization for senior leadership roles is an excellent opportunity to maximize returns of your investment in your people whilst also creating a competitive global advantage. Increasingly, this is a compliance issue with the ASX and AICD requiring companies to increase the number of women to their executive teams and boards.
