Inspired Leadership 2023
We are excited to introduce the inaugural regional leadership program for the Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu Peninsula and Kangaroo Island.
Working in partnership with Regional Development Australia – Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu and Kangaroo Island, Inspired Leadership 2023 is an engaging six-month program that supports the development of regenerative leadership capability for a diverse cohort of aspiring, emerging and established leaders.
We were delighted to launch the program on 1 June 2o23 with Cedric Varcoe, as shown in this short video.
The program is held in a variety of locations across the region, on the lands of the Ngarrindjeri, Kaurna and Peramangk peoples. The program will culminate in a day at the Newday Leadership Summit on 2 November at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
This is a contemporary program that celebrates excellence in the region, exploring challenges and opportunities with a global perspective.
Excellence in leadership
Inspired Leadership 2023 is led by Newday Leadership’s co-directors, Katrina Webb and Matthew Wright-Simon, with a range of special leadership facilitators. The program is informed by Newday’s five tenets of leadership excellence:
- Global change
- Wellbeing and resilience
- Cultural awareness
- Social responsibility
- Diversity and inclusion.
Each monthly session is held in a different location, with a mid-program ‘mini summit’ including an overnight option.
Inspired Leadership 2023 focuses on exemplary participant experiences that appeal to all the senses (including a sense of fun, excitement and humour). The program:
- connects to Country, informed by First Nations’ leaders
- increases leadership capacity, influence and resilience
- supports cross-sector collaboration
- develops leadership skills
- builds a culture of active citizenship.
Each program participant is well supported, with program features including:
- professional ‘personality’ profiles
- a 12-month subscription to a world-class wellbeing platform
- an online group to maintain connection, with check-in opportunities between monthly sessions
- worksheets and templates, readings, viewings and listenings for each session
- nourishing, sustainable and delicious food and drink (working with regional providers and producers)
- consideration of all abilities and lived experiences
- approaches and environments that help each person learn most effectively.
Inspired Leadership 2023 is designed and curated to support the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (also known as the Global Goals).
Program eligibility and details
Applications have closed for the program’s 2023 intake. Expressions of interest were sought from aspiring, emerging and established leaders in business, community and government organisations. In addition to seeking leadership development support, we were looking for a diverse group of people who have a strong motivation to make a difference in their local communities. Our current cohort exemplifies these qualities.
