As leaders today, politicians face a more complex, pressured and difficult job than ever before.


The Parliamentary Leaders Program is a high-impact, time-optimised and effective program for leaders who wish to strengthen their capability in responding to the challenges of the 21st Century.


At a glance:

Designed with input from politicians and political parties, the sessions provide a stimulating and intellectually challenging experience using small group discussions, scenario building, workshops, case studies and high-profile guest speakers.


Why participate?

There are very few leadership programs directly targeted for MPs. I found this extremely beneficial in enhancing my awareness and guiding me to confidence to be the leader I know I can be and have a positive impact on my state.
— The Hon. Ruth Forrest MLC

This program is part of the Australian Futures Project's commitment to improving the understanding of key challenges facing Australia, increasing the quality of discussion about those challenges and increasing the quality of action towards the future Australians want. 


Impact and Outcomes

State Parliamentary Leaders Program

5-7 November, 2018
Brisbane, Queensland

Designed in partnership with Corporate Evolution, this iteration of the program is open to all State Parliamentarians. The course brochure coming soon, in the meantime please refer to the brochure for the most recent iteration of the program. For more information please contact us. 


For more information, please see the course brochure from the most recent iteration of the course, which was tailored specifically for West Australian parliamentarians. Updated brochure coming soon. 


The leadership program is essentially about power - not the power to the position we hold, but of us as people to bring about change. I wish a course like this had been available when I was elected to parliament. I am more powerful and effective representative because of it.
— Julie Owens MP, Member of Parramatta
For a Parliamentarian, it is your leadership that will be your legacy. The PLP will define how you lead in the future - to be a transformer.”
— Susan Lamb MP, Member for Longman
I found that I had the confidence to commit to policy direction and pursue it rather than accepting advice from more experienced team members ‘that it could not be done’. Without the catalyst of this course, I’m not sure that would have been possible at this early stage of my political experience.
— Ann Sudmalis MP, Member for Gilmore


The Parliamentary Leaders Program is endorsed by the President of the Liberal Party of Australia, The Hon Nick Greiner AC and the President of the Australian Labor Party, The Hon Wayne Swan MP
