Future of leadership returns to Newcastle this year, featuring a new line up of some of the best speakers in the country. Responding to feedback from last year, we have introduced optional afternoon workshop sessions which aim to provide more practical, intimate style sessions that will ensure you leave with even more new insights and tools to implement in your own business. For an additional $99 on top of your ticket price, you get access to two workshops run by Dr Sean Richardson and Peter Baines OAM.
