Over one year on I still reflect on my learnings from the FFLP. I am forever grateful to have taken part in such a powerful leadership and self discovery course. The program and its content left me empowered, inspired and with many new friends for life. I learnt so much from hearing other people’s stories from around our region and felt more connected than ever to our beautiful community here on the Fleurieu. I have a new network of supportive and inspiring colleagues now that all help me stay accountable to becoming the best version of myself. I became confident after the program to take the leap and grow my small business into a career.

Do the Fleurieu future leaders program they said. It will change your life, they said. In the 3rd year of the program, I applied and was accepted to the 2019 cohort FFLP. Nervous anticipation ensued but I emerged in December after completing the program a changed person. My life is now enriched in so many ways. The wider FFLP community has broadened my already strong local networks. The course was curated so carefully- we learnt about leadership from many local legends. The 2019 group are all people I grew to love, and respect and admire, and I know that these people I will be able to depend on from hereonin. The special relationships formed and the constant encouragement to do the work, to shed some of your layers and be accountable yet vulnerable and to look at where you are not achieving, and take charge. The relationship that improved above and beyond was the one I had with myself. It was indeed life changing and now I will echo the alumni of previous years. Do the future leaders program. It WILL change your life....if you let it.
