ACT Members’ Connect



date & time

20/02/2019 - 8:00 am to 9:00 am

This informal members-only get together is designed as an opportunity to meet, engage, network and get to know your fellow members as well as your local Regional Advisory Committee.

Each Members’ Connect we will be joined by a speaker who will briefly share their insights into a current issue affecting management and leadership which will act as a starting point to guide an interactive group discussion. For February we are delighted to welcome Michael Hawkins FIML who will discuss Coaching and Mentoring.

Pop in for 15 minutes or an hour, grab a coffee and pastry, make some new connections and discuss management and leadership issues. We look forward to you joining us!
