2018 Folio


Australia needs citizens who commit themselves to positive outcomes in the economic, social, environmental and cultural spheres.

In Folio, you can expect an intense learning experience that will challenge the intellectually curious and delight open-minded explorers who want to move into a portfolio career as the next step after significant professional success.


Who the Program is for

Folio is for accomplished professionals, with a breadth of career exposure 15 years+ in executive and c-suite level roles, who are looking for ways to deploy their skills, experiences, interests and values to create positive social impact.  


About the Program 

Folio will provoke and agitate your values, beliefs, philosophies and prejudices, and push you to re-evaluate who you are and what impact you wish to impart.

It is an intense seven-month, interactive and experiential development program that takes participants on a “deep dive” experience into leadership practice.  

The program will expose you to a remarkable cross-section of contemporary leaders who will unveil issues from a variety of perspectives. You will hear their frank opinions and have the opportunity to explore, consider and challenge. A greater awareness of the complexity of community issues, many of which may not have previously been on your ‘radar’, will be exposed and you will gain an appreciation for how leaders are tackling them.  One of the greatest outcomes of Folio is being part of a network of other highly-senior leaders from across the government, corporate and community sectors, whom will become life-long supporters and enablers of your journey.


Program Outcomes

  • An awakening of the impact and complexity of critical social issues, such as social fragmentation, climate change and growing institutional distrust
  • Clarity of purpose and a vision for your community leadership 
  • A clear pathway to achieve social impact and leave a lasting legacy
