ACPET Melbourne Executive Retreat 6-8 April 2014 - save the date!

Monday, February 3 2014

In the tranquil park setting of Aitken Hill in Yuroke, just north of Melbourne, you will join your peers for an intense, practical and fun two days of highly focused discussion, workshopping and peer sharing. You will be led by a group of high-level facilitators, business and industry experts to develop a much clearer understanding of yourself as educational entrepreneurs, learning:

  • what this means for you in terms of where you are in your organisation
  • where you have taken your organisation to this point, and
  • how you can make your organisation flourish and grow.

Themes that you will intensely explore and workshop will include:

  • enhancing your professional growth as an educational entrepreneur
  • developing your commercial mindset to position your business in the educational marketplace
  • improving your leadership management
  • implementing and managing change across your organisation
  • harnessing your intercultural skills to make your business flourish, and
  • ACPET products and service tools that will help your educational business thrive and grow.

The Harvard model of unpacking a case study will be used in the workshops so that you can immediately applying learnings to your own situation
