About Us
The Leadership Consortium is Australia’s premier leadership development organisation. We are a member-based organisation
comprising some of Australia’s most important public and private sector organisations. Since 1993 we have been designing and
delivering innovative leadership development programs to leaders at all levels of our membership base.

their organisation. We facilitate this philosophy by providing our members with a unique learning environment where the exchange of
mutual experiences and generation of fresh ideas thrives.
Our current membership includes a group of committed leading enterprises from business, Federal and State governments who are
shaping the debate on leadership in Australia:
