Our line-up speakers bring a diverse range of experiences and insights, offering participants a comprehensive and multifaceted understanding of leadership. Each session is designed to address different aspects of leadership, from ethical considerations to strategic planning and personal development. 


The Leadership Academy is open to all individuals seeking to excel in leadership, regardless of their affiliations. While priority will be given to Wānaka Business Chamber members for the limited spaces available, anyone passionate about leadership is encouraged to apply.
