Executive Management in Queensland Local Government provides local government professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the role of the Chief Executive Officer in Queensland local government.  This programme has been written by experienced CEOs and senior managers from Queensland local government and goes beyond the legislation to explore the real challenges and experiences you might expect to face in a CEO role.

As a participant on this programme, you will gain full awareness of the role and responsibilities of Chief Executive Officers in local government; the challenges, the benefits, the satisfactions and the frustrations.  You will have the opportunity to troubleshoot questions arising from your own experience and to seek feedback on specific issues you may have faced.

The programme is professionally facilitated and each module features a relevant case study presented by a CEO or senior officer.  As a result, over the 6 programme sessions, you will have access to 7 experienced local government professionals who will share their views and offer feedback on any issues you choose to raise.  These professionals have been selected for their experience and diversity; offering different perspectives on the role of CEO and providing role models to suit different personalities and approaches.


The programme is limited to 24 places to ensure participants have maximum interaction with facilitators and practitioners.  Please note: a minimum of 15 participants are required to ensure this programme goes ahead.

The 2021 Executive Management Programme will be delivered via Teams over a three month period commencing 23 July 2021 and concluding on 1 October 2021.  The six modules will be delivered fortnightly (following the initial orientation session) allowing time to read each module and prepare for the discussions.
