Leaders for Geelong


The Leaders for Geelong program is providing the region with inspired and well connected visionaries who are better prepared to lead in their own organisations and the community. 

Launched in 2006, this two year program has now graduated more than 300 individuals. These people come from large and small businesses, not for profit and statutory organisations. They form an alumni who understand the challenges and opportunities shaping the region, who engage with opportunities to address them, and who are connected in an enduring and rewarding network. 

For more information about the program please contact Janelle Meyes on or 0407 838 653.
