LV's Igniting Leadership Program is a concentrated learning experience that is designed to foster a new generation of leaders. Here Sandy Bell, a participant in ILP for June 2012, reflects on the first few days of the program:

It's the end of day one of LV's Igniting leadership program and my head is full of ideas, reflections and leadership possibilities - I am actually exhausted!

It was a very wet Melbourne day and on the journey in I was thinking about the who, what, where, how and why? Who would be in the course with me; what would we actually be doing to ignite my leadership; where would this take me now and into the future (an where was I actually going this morning); how was I going to fit in and was I the right person for this course and why was I here!! I quickly realised that I was not the only one thinking these things and that everyone was asking the same questions. From the get-go the program immediately grabbed me and I was completely captured. The speakers were generous and engaging, everyone got something from their words and ideas; I was ignited for a 5 day journey.

I'm pretty excited about the next 4 days on this leadership journey and I am thinking anything is possible.
