Global Ageing Leadership Retreat (17-18 September 2017)

The Global Ageing Leadership Retreat is a professional development opportunity for worldwide leaders in aged care and is designed to:

  • Enhance leadership skills by exploring the theory and practice of leadership in the context of an ageing world, and

  • Provide a growth and development experience to inspire and prepare leaders of today and tomorrow

Emerging leaders and seasoned professionals of aged care organizations come together to learn together from other experienced leaders in the field. Participants come away with skills, insights, ideas and confidence in providing leadership in times of change and innovation. They gain a global peer network that is sustained well beyond the retreat experience.

The retreat includes facilitator-led conversations with visionary leaders, team exercises, readings, tools, films and participatory discussions enriched by participants’ diverse perspectives.

This event will be held in English and is not translated.
