Highly regarded across the industry, Consult Australia’s FutureNet Business Leaders Course has been running annually for more than a decade, with its alumni in the public and private sector sought-after by employers and clients alike.

Through sixteen sessions delivered over eight months, the Course builds on existing personal strengths, develops new skills, and broadens networks.

Course participants also complete a multi-disciplinary team project supported by an accomplished industry mentor. The project takes participants out of their comfort-zone, and puts into practice the skills and knowledge developed through the course.

Winning project teams are selected based on both a public vote and their presentations to a panel of industry judges.
