Technical specialists are undoubtedly the essential cogs and gears of any successful organisation. From accountants to IT experts to data analysts, these skilled professionals earn promotions through years of dedication and proven results. However, with little experience and training in management and leadership, these managers often struggle with the transition from executing daily technical tasks to planning long-term strategy.

On the flip side, professional specialists looking to be promoted to managers can often be disregarded by senior leaders who misjudge their leadership potential.

The Institute of Managers and Leaders’ intimate, hands-on Melbourne Masterclass, ‘Accidental Manager to Intentional Leader’, will equip you with the essential leadership skills to successfully transition from a technical specialist to an intentional leader and to manage teams effectively.

The day will feature a range of speaker sessions and panel discussions for a practical and engaging event.
