We were proud to have nine Ampcontrol representatives from across our Hunter operations graduate from the 2018 Hunternet Future Leaders Program at a gala dinner in Newcastle on Friday 2 November.
The Hunternet Future Leaders program, now in its fourth year, is designed to equip future leaders with the skills, contacts and confidence to lead. The program is delivered across 12 sessions by current leaders and professional practitioners and culminates in a group project, supported by an experienced industry mentor.
The objective of this year’s group project was to solve the Hunter’s Brain Drain and reduce the number of young people who are taking their degree and leaving the Region. The Future Leaders were also tasked with identifying what Newcastle and the Hunter can do to attract talent, skills and businesses from outside the region.
During the gala dinner, the five Future Leaders groups delivered an elevator pitch presentation of the solution they had developed before the winning submission was announced.
Team Worrimi, featuring two Ampcontrol participants (Amanda Murray and Adam Fisher) took home the top gong for their concept ’90 Degree, the Right Angle for Business’. Their project addresses the brain drain by producing work-ready graduates and connecting students with business opportunities within the Region.
Congratulations to everyone who was involved in this year’s program. At Ampcontrol, we provide our people with opportunities to be the best they can be, and we’re excited to see where this opportunity will take our Future Leaders within the organisation.
