What people are saying about The Leadership Exchange

The Leadership Exchange is a wonderful way for aspiring leaders to get together, share stories and develop networks. Guest speakers provide an insight into senior management and provoke food for thought. Janine provides simple, but highly effective, strategies to develop each participant. Very highly recommended.

Deb Frizza, Executive Director- Strategic Outcomes, Emmaus College

Scheduling time to connect with other professionals and engage in critical conversations about challenges to navigate and emerging opportunity, is arguably more important than ever before. The Leadership Exchange offers a unique approach to inspiring great leadership for 21st Century education and I always leave with a bundle of new ideas to consider. Looking forward to the next event!

Cheryl Kane, Child Safety & Wellbeing Coordinator, Aquinas College

The Leadership Exchange is a wonderful opportunity to share valuable learning experiences and make professional connections. It is an excellent platform in which to network and find inspiration through developing relationships. See you at the next Exchange!!
