Why are you participating in a Leadership Wimmera program? To learn new skills and ways of showing better leadership.

What do you hope to achieve and-or learn by participating in Leadership Wimmera? I hope to achieve better communication skills with a wide variety of different people and for me, how to have more patience.

What has been the highlight of the program so far? The retreat, it opened my eyes to endless possibilities. If you put your mind to anything you really want to achieve and work towards that goal, it can be achieved.

The Weekly Advertiser, in partnership with Leadership Wimmera, continues to present weekly profiles of this year’s leadership program participants.

Leadership Wimmera has provided opportunities for the development of emerging and existing community leaders across the Wimmera and southern Mallee in Victoria since its inception in 2002.

Graduates from the program, which is overseen by Wimmera Development
Association, use life and leadership skills they learn in the program in their roles as business owners, managers, employees, volunteers, parents, friends and community members.

It has two flagship programs and runs several other development opportunities annually. 

The Change Makers program is for existing leaders – those who own or run a business and-or who lead a team at work or in their community life and who have demonstrated potential to commit to greater leadership involvement in their workplace or community.

An Emerging Leaders program is for people wanting to build leadership skills to increase their influence within the workplace or community groups.
