We are not doing this alone. We have identified six champions within the region who are equally motivated to explore and develop knowledge around our collective futures, and the leadership attributes which will help to deliver these visions.
Building empowered communities: Our Champions
Daniella Princi: Psychologist, holistic health professional and advocate for women in leadership.
Mark Worthington: Retired Olympic and International Basketball Athlete and advocate for strong leadership and mental health in sport
Lisa Cartwright: Retired Elite Basketballer and leadership and equality champion
Brendan Earl: Successful small business owner and advocate for Aboriginal business and employment opportunities
Michelle Lewis: Experienced International conscious business leadership consultant and advocate for human potential, wellness & sustainable living
Simone Nani: General Manager of SWFL and advocate for women and health and mental health in the community and sport
We know it’s always controversial identifying someone as a champion, however we know these individuals exhibit the definition “a person who vigorously supports or defends a person or cause” and are proud advocates for leadership and success.
These champions are of different backgrounds, different experiences, different educations and in broad terms are different in many ways with one significant similarity: they passionately care about others and the future of our leadership within the region.
Finally, this project is one that is driven by the desire and need to help set an amazing path forward. We are undertaking this as a small business, independently. This is important as we are not reporting back to anyone who will potentially bias the findings, and it allows us to truly listen and hear the voices of the community.
Some things you may want to know:
What is the purpose of this? To understand from a Regional perspective views and opinions on how leadership is received, viewed and experienced. This understanding will help to inform future learning opportunities.
What does my participation involve? Working with a small team and openly sharing your views through a focus group experience facilitated by one of our champions. The focus groups generally take an hour.
What’s in it for you? You get to help inform future aspects of programs with regards to evolving leadership from a regional perspective, and ensure your voice is heard. We will be using your knowledge to help provide better leadership programs and processes to help positively impact our region’s future.
What happens with my responses? The information you share will be amalgamated with hundreds of other responses. Our report will highlight trends across the survey and will not report on individual answers.
If you have any questions about your participation, you are invited to speak directly to Kianna or Jan at IPS on (08) 9721 7057. Just call and let them know who you are, and we will answer whatever we can. Any communications will be confidential.
