AUSTRALASIAN MANAGEMENT CHALLENGE
What is the Australasian Management Challenge?
The Australasian Management Challenge is an innovative development opportunity that is a convergence of ideas, energy, academic rigour and practical application – the elements which develop great leadership.
This programme is the premier forum for current and emerging local government leaders. It is a sophisticated development programme designed to deliver personal, team and organisational professional development.
The challenge has been running across Australia and New Zealand for more than 20 years. It is good fun, great value and a hands-on approach to leadership development that translates into relevant, tangible and enduring benefits for people, teams and organisations.
Everyone who participates in the Challenge – from experienced managers to emerging leaders, comes away with new and practical insights into excellence in leadership and management.
Teams from across Australia and New Zealand compete during a week in March each year.
The best performing team in each region go on to compete in the Australasian Final which will be held in conjunction with the Local Government Professionals Australia National Congress which is held in Darwin on 31 July, and the Winner of the Australasian Final will be announced at the National Congress Gala Awards Dinner.
Local Government Professionals Australia will provide teams with an allowance to meet the average costs of return economy air travel to the National Final (conditions apply). Participants will also receive complimentary Event Entry and complimentary congress registration including attendance to the Awards Gala Awards Dinner.
Teams will be required to cover their own accommodation expenses. Information relating to accommodation including location and costs will be made available prior to the Australasian final.
