|“Your narrative is a powerful way to evoke leadership”
As we draw 2017 to a close it’s a great time to reflect on ‘the year that was’ at NML.
Undoubtedly our Northern Mallee Leaders Program was exceptional with all indicators showing an extremely high satisfaction rate from participants and very positive feedback from their corporate and community sponsors. Well done to Program Manager Rod Robinson who was sincerely farewelled with great accolades at the Graduation evening.
NML mission is to develop people in active business and community leadership roles. Our strategy is to create a more sustainable organisation through an active Alumni, good governance, valuable partnerships and productive stakeholder relations. We aim to do this through a number of initiatives such as expanding our products and services to best meet the demands and needs of our dynamic region. We need to ensure the capacity and capability of our most important resource – our people is well and truly ready to match the changing environment, challenges and opportunities of the moment in order to grow our community both socially and economically.
For 2018, we are already developing a range of workshops, programs and events including fantastic and inspiring speakers for our region and especially for our Alumni cohort of over 140 graduates of the NMLP. Look for updates at www.nml.org.au
NML welcomes two staff members to our team in 2018 - a Program Manager and Business Support Officer. Our Committee of Management will be under new leadership and include an additional sub-committee for Fundraising and Sponsorship. Our ties with VRCLP will be vital as we advocate for a government funding support beyond 2019.
As the peak provider of leadership development for our region, we invite all ideas and options on how NML best meets the leadership aspirations and needs of the region. If you haven’t figured out how to fully develop prospective leaders in your organisation, business or industry then let us work with you on how to develop and engage your people together!
NML invites community members to take steps along your personal and professional journey with a guiding hand from us in 2018. We wish all our supporters, especially our graduates a safe and happy Christmas and holiday season.
