The New CEO Workshop

We provide a range of nationally recognised qualifications (local government specific) and council-specific non-accredited short courses as well as other professional development training options.


Many people believe that becoming a CEO is the summit of a career. However, it is described by some as a base camp. The biggest challenges of your career still lie ahead. You are in a situation that only a few people experience in their lifetime.

Becoming a CEO is a huge step, which involves both predictable and unanticipated challenges.  It also requires a key integrated set of key attitudes and skills – these will be covered in this one-day workshop.
