Leading change in the West

In November 2019 members of the West Coast community were empowered to positively influence the region’s future through a new immersive learning opportunity designed by Tasmanian Leaders.

Leading Change in the West was delivered in Queenstown, 28 – 30 November, with the University of Tasmania’s support. It was designed to provide participants with the skills and confidence to become the next wave of leaders capable of transforming the region.

The first component of the program was presented across three days and included panel discussions, interactive sessions, network mapping and assessment of strengths. Participants also self-selected into teams to develop a project that will positively benefit the region.

Groups will present their projects to a wider audience at an event being held in Strahan on Wednesday 26 February.

Program participants are from a diverse set of backgrounds including state and local government, tourism, the arts, small business, finance, education and community development.
