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 will support the development of regenerative leadership capability for a diverse cohort of aspiring, emerging and established leaders.
The program will be 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 in early November at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
This is a contemporary program that will celebrate excellence in the region, exploring challenges and opportunities with a global perspective.
Excellence in leadership
Inspired Leadership 2023 will be facilitated by Newday Leadership’s co-directors, Katrina Webb and Matthew Wright-Simon, with a range of special leadership facilitators. The program will be informed by Newday’s five tenets of leadership excellence:
- Global change
- Wellbeing and resilience
- Cultural awareness
- Social responsibility
- Diversity and inclusion.
Each monthly session will be held in a different location, with a mid-program ‘mini summit’ including an overnight option.
Inspired Leadership 2023 will focus on exemplary participant experiences that appeal to all the senses (including a sense of fun, excitement and humour). People can expect a program that will:
- be connected to Country, informed by First Nations’ leaders
- increase leadership capacity, influence and resilience
- support cross-sector collaboration
- develop leadership skills
- build a culture of active citizenship.
Each program participant will be 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 will help each person learn most effectively.
Inspired Leadership 2023 will be designed and curated to support the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (also known as the Global Goals).
